Moultrie  --   Investigators say they caught counterfeiters in the act and found more than just fake money when they arrested the suspects.

Moultrie Police, The Secret Service, And the Colquitt County Sheriff's Office worked together on the investigation that led to this home on 31st Street Southeast late Wednesday.

Investigators say when they raided the home, they found Gary Lambright and his girlfriend Meagan Pearson in the process of printing more counterfeit money.

But it also turned into a drug case. "We found Just over what would be two thousand dollars worth of counterfeit bills, in addition to a computer and scanner that was used to manufacture them," says Sgt. Seth Walters of the Moultrie Police Department.  "And also what we weren't expecting to find were the ingredients to manufacture methamphetamine."

Lambright and Pearson are both charged with forgery and manufacturing Meth.  More charges may be filed.
