Police bust Fargo-Moorhead counterfeit ring

FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Authorities say they have dismantled a significant counterfeiting operation in the Fargo-Moorhead area.

West Fargo Police Detective Sgt. Greg Warren said this morning that authorities confiscated scanners, printers and solution for washing bills while executing a search warrant in Moorhead, Minn. They also seized thousands of dollars in counterfeit bills.

A man and woman were arrested, and a third person believed to be involved is in the Clay County, Minn., jail on a warrant.

There have been numerous reports recently of bogus bills being passed at businesses in the metro area. Fargo police alone have investigated more than a dozen cases since mid-May.
