ROCKLAND, Maine — Two Rockland residents were taken to the Knox County Jail Tuesday evening after police said they were manufacturing fake $50 bills.
Charles Dodge, 33, and Charlotte Shellman, 41, both of Rockland, were arrested and charged with Class B aggravated forgery, according to Rockland Deputy Police Chief Christopher Young.
Police had received information that led them to obtain a search warrant. Police went through the Thomaston Street home and found fake bills and a computer and printer that were used to make the bills, Young said.
Information on the amount of money printed was not immediately available.
There have been no reports of counterfeit bills being distributed, Young said, but he pointed out that the two suspects have not been cooperative.
Bail was set at $10,000 cash for both Dodge and Shellman. If they fail to make bail, they would make their initial appearances in Knox County Unified Courts in Rockland.
