Over the past two weeks the Sallisaw Police Department has taken multiple reports of counterfeit currency being passed at local businesses as well as to residents. Officers began investigating and were able to develop suspects. During the course of the investigation Chris Jackson was taken into custody. Chris was in possession of a large amount of counterfeit currency. Also taken into custody was Stevie Jones who was in possession of counterfeit currency as well. Officers then conducted a search warrant on a residence and as a result officers seized printers, laptops, counterfeit currency, and drug paraphernalia. A third person, Judith Jackson, who lives in the residence was also arrested after the execution of the search warrant.
If any residents and/or businesses in the area have recently received any counterfeit currency and have not already reported it please contact Det. Lance Yoakum or Det. Blake Brunk at the Sallisaw Police Department 918-775-4141.
