Deputies served a search warrant at the home Wednesday
KELSO, WA (KPTV) -
A Kelso man was in the process of making up to $300 in high-quality counterfeit money to use at the Clark County Fair, according to Cowlitz County sheriff's deputies.
Detectives arrested Jeremiah JH Anderson, 34, on a count of forgery. They served a search warrant at his home on Nevada Drive on Wednesday.
A printer, high-quality linen paper, forged U.S. currency in different stages of the manufacturing process, drug paraphernalia, a passport and a check book belonging to people who did not live at the house are among the evidence deputies say they collected at the home.
An informant told Cowlitz County investigators Anderson was planning to use this latest round of fake cash at the fair, which opens this week.
Anderson's father did not want to comment on the arrest, but said he was home while the search warrant was served. He said Anderson was renting a room at the house on Nevada Drive.
Detectives say Anderson is also responsible for making up to $20,000 in fake money over the past few months and using that money to buy drugs and pay off debt.
Anderson has been arrested in two other forgery cases this year.
In March, Woodland police arrested him on charges of attempted forgery, theft, possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia. According to investigators, he had counterfeit money in his wallet and car at the time.
In June, Kelso police arrested Anderson on charges of theft and identity theft in connection to a forged checks case.
Anyone with information about these investigations is asked to call Detective Rob Stumph at 360-577-3092. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 360-577-1206.
