Three people went to jail following an investigation into counterfeit bills being passed in various Douglas County locations since July.
Dwes Hutson of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says the agency began an investigation and developed information that 36 year old Corey Roland of Glide, along with others, was involved in the production and passing of bills.
On Monday DCSO served a search warrant at the residence of Corey Roland, in the 200 block of Estella in Glide. When the warrant was served, Roland was at the home along with 27 year old Cory Williams of Idleyld Park and 25 year old Rochelle Claughton of Glide. Also at the residence was a child under the age of five.
Hutson says that detectives seized number items from the home which related to the investigation. Also seized were narcotics.
All three people were arrested and lodged at the Douglas County Jail. The child was taken into protective custody by the Department of Human Services.
Roland was charged with unlawful possession of methamphetamine, endangering the welfare of a minor, first degree forgery, criminal possession of a forged instrument, second degree theft and driving while suspended.
Williams and Claughton were both detained on the meth charge while Claughton also faces the added charge of endangering the welfare of a child. Both has since been released conditionally for now.
Dwes Hutson says that the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is in contact with the United States Secret Service and more arrests in the investigation are expected.
