Brighton Police bust up counterfeiting operation

A counterfeiting operation run out of a local hotel was busted up earlier this month in Brighton.

According to a press release, Brighton Police received a report about counterfeit bills passed at a pair of businesses on Dec. 8. After an investigation, a suspect and vehicle were identified. Later that same day, Brighton officers spotted the suspect vehicle and pulled it over.

Inside the vehicle, which was determined to be stolen, officers recovered drugs and counterfeit cash. The suspect gave information to officers from the City of Brighton Crime Scene Response Team that led them to a nearby hotel. After obtaining a search warrant for two rooms at the hotel, they discovered more drugs, counterfeit cash and equipment used to make counterfeit cash.

No arrests were announced, nor any other details, although the Brighton Police Detective Bureau continues to investigate the incident.
