The Sherman Police Department announced the arrest of three suspects wanted for their alleged use of counterfeit bills throughout the city in recent weeks.
In an emailed statement released Friday afternoon, the department said Arthur Zachary Dixon, 47; Tiffany Paige Dixon, 42; and Jeffrey Earl Robichaud, 49, were arrested in connection with the case. The Dixons were arrested at their residence in the 1200 block of East Cherry Street on Thursday. The statement said officers executed a search warrant at the pair’s property and evidence of “counterfeit money manufacturing was seized” during the search. The two were subsequently arrested and booked into the Grayson County Jail
Sherman Police identified Robichaud as the third suspect in the counterfeit case and he was arrested after authorities searched his residence in the 2200 block of South Crockett Street and found narcotics. Robichaud was booked into the Grayson County Jail Friday on a narcotics charge and was later served with an arrest warrant for forgery while he was in custody.
Sgt. D.M. Hampton said investigators believe the Dixons passed counterfeit $50, $20 and $10 bills at the Goodwill on Lamar Street on Oct. 3 and again at a yard sale and at the Dairy Queen on Sunset Boulevard on Oct. 7. Hampton said Robichaud is believed to have used at least one counterfeit bill at the same yard sale.
The department posted surveillance photos of the Dixons on social media earlier this week, and asked the public for help in identifying the two. The statement said that strategy was integral to the arrest of all three suspects.
“This case was solved directly because of information received from citizens that had seen the post on Sherman PD’s Facebook page,” the statement read. “It is a good example of the community and police coming together to help solve crime.”
Both Dixons and Robichaud remain in the Grayson County Jail on $10,000 surety bonds. It was unclear whether any have an attorney representing them.
