SALEM – The Richardson County Sheriff’s Office reports discovering a counterfeit operation during a probation search at Salem on Nov. 25.

Phillip Doerr, 28, is charged with forgery and possession of a forged instrument.

 An arrest affidavit says a deputy found paper, scissors and copies of US currency, including paper printed front and back in the image of  12, $100 bills, two, $20 bills, two, $5 bills and five $1 bills.

The deputy says he also found one sheet with the front and back of a $20 bill lined up.

There were 41 copies of $100 and $20 bills.
