According to a police, Bell used her mother’s teacher identification last Monday while pretending to be a substitute teacher at Riverside Elementary School in Waterford Township. She was arrested after being confronted by school officials. Farley was later arrested while her daughter was being interviewed by police.
Authorities said Bell told them that she impersonated her mother because Farley didn’t want to miss an appointment. Police said the women later told authorities that they needed money.MORE NEWS: Wayne County Partnering With CDC To Hold COVID-19 Testing Site In Dearborn
