A mother and son are accused of making their own money and then using the counterfeit bills to makes purchases in Wayne and Ontario counties.

The man and  his mother were charged Monday by Newark police with first-degree forgery, first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, fourth-degree conspiracy, second-degree scheme to defraud and petit larceny.

The two were arrested following an investigation into the distribution of counterfeit $20 bills that have been handed out at local businesses in the southern parts of Wayne County and in Ontario County, police said. The police tracked down the pair, and it was discovered the duo were allegedly printing their own money, police said.

The man, police allege, created nearly $500 in counterfeit bills using a photocopier. He then allegedly used them with his mother at fast food restaurants, convenience stores and garage sales to purchase various items.


Additional arrests are pending in the case.
