Police Make Arrests After Seizing Bogus Money

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (AP) - Authorities said that they found about $50,000 in counterfeit money during a raid on a Cleveland Heights duplex on Thursday.

Police Chief Martin Lentz said that it's the largest counterfeiting seizure ever made in the city. Four people were arrested but charges have not yet been filed.

Police said that the counterfeiting ring is a major operation that passed computer-generated bills throughout the Cleveland area.

They're not sure exactly how much money had been produced.

Police said the operation's printing equipment was kept in a Cleveland apartment.
