Thomasville- The Thomas County Sheriff's Office and the Secret Service are investigating a widespread counterfeiting case.

     It started with a confidential informant who was ordering fake money out of Albany. The funny money was traced to Thomas County following a traffic stop on U.S. 19 just north of Thomasville. After searching the car, Deputy Mike Dean found several counterfeit bills in various denominations. Investigator Pascal Autrey says Dean made a bigger find after pressing on. "Some of the currency that we got was still in the sheets, it had not even been cut. So that set off some good alarms," says Autrey.

     Timothy Duncan and Norris Jones were in the car Dean stopped. They have been charged with forgery and are out of jail on 10,000 dollars bond each. Autrey says the operation may reach as far as Atlanta and Florida.
