An anonymous tip from Crime Stoppers recently led to two counterfeit money arrests in Whitesboro.
The Grayson County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant at a business in the 1000 block of West Highway 82 in Whitesboro Thursday evening and arrested Jimmy Fox and Nichole Greiss.
Fox, 37, of Whitesboro was charged with forgery of a government document and possession of a controlled substance. His bonds were set at $35,000. Greiss, 39, of Whitesboro was also charged with forgery of a government document. Her bail was set at $15,000. Both individuals were in the Grayson County Jail as of Friday afternoon.
GCSO Capt. Sarah Bigham said the suspects had printed multiple denominations ranging from $1 bills all the way up to $100 bills. She said investigators seized counterfeit bills along with equipment to print them.
“We’re not sure if any of the bills had been circulated,” Bigham said. “If anyone thinks they had received counterfeit bills, they can contact their local law enforcement agency whether it is related with these individuals or any other case.”
Bigham said only Fox was charged with possession of a controlled substance, as he was found with roughly eight grams of methamphetamine on him.
Bigham said Crime Stoppers is a way for individuals to anonymously report crime. She said law enforcement agencies have a way to take the tips and, if needed, get in touch with the tipsters through the hot line. The number is 877-373-8477.
Bigham explained after a case is completed, the individuals who made the tip can sometimes receive a reward from Crime Stoppers, who will determine what award is appropriate for the individual case.
