FORT SMITH, Ark. — Police in Fort Smith have arrested two people accused of printing counterfeit money.
Authorities said Wednesday that 34-year-old Summer Marie Coram and 29-year-old Matthew Lewis Counts of Muldrow, were arrested at a Fort Smith motel for first-degree forgery.
The Southwest Times Record reports that a confidential informant told police that Coram was producing fake currency. Police conducted an undercover investigation, using the informant to meet Coram and Counts at the motel to obtain counterfeit money.
Police said Coram and Counts allegedly traded counterfeit money for illegal narcotics, and also used the fake money to buy electronics on Craigslist.
Both were being held without bond at the Sebastian County Jail.
