Counterfeiters busted

October 25, 2005

Thomasville, Georgia-- The Thomasville Police Department and the Secret Service are investigating a counterfeiting ring.

Officers discovered almost $400 in fake hundreds and 50's during a traffic stop on 319 North Monday night. They found it in a Bank of America envelope while searching a Dodge pickup truck near Clyde Griffin Road.

Some of the money was passed off at local businesses. Many of the bills have the same serial numbers and are cut unevenly.

Officers have charged Calvin Harrison and Harry Bell with five counts of forgery. If convicted, they could spend up to five years in prison.

Investigators say they're looking for other suspects.
