Rashida Groomster
Age: 20
Madison, Tennessee

On March 4, we asked for the public's help to identify a suspect wanted for attempting to pass a counterfeit $100 bill at the Cool Springs Boulevard Walgreens. Thanks to members of the public who answered that call for help, she’s been identified as 20-year-old Rashida Groomster, of Madison. Groomster is currently in custody in Davidson County; charges in Franklin are pending.

The Franklin Police Department is thankful to the news media who helped us reach the public, and for engaged citizens who came forward with information. You made a difference.
