Police make three arrests in connection to a counterfeit bill operation in Salina. Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that the public’s help aided the investigation.
“We were able to identify these individuals through the information received from the public and also from the video footage to help confirm that these were the people who were responsible, ” Sweeney said.
Officers used a warrant at 915 E. Ellsworth on Wednesday and arrested 57-year-old Kim Ringer, 30-year-old Jerry Huckabey and 34-year-old Emily Meyer, all of Salina.
