SHERMAN, Texas -- Sherman police say social media posts led them to identify and arrest two alleged counterfeiters.

On Thursday, the department posted surveillance photos on Facebook showing a man and a woman enjoying a dessert at the Dairy Queen on Sunset Boulevard on October 7.

Investigators said the pair had attempted to pass bogus bills at that location and at a Goodwill store four days earlier.

Police spokesman Sgt. D.M. Hampton said in a written statement that tips from Facebook led detectives to Arthur Dixon, 47, and Tiffany Dixon, 42, at their residence in the 1200 block of Cherry Street. Evidence of a counterfeit money manufacturing operation was seized.

Also arrested on counterfeit charges was 49-year-old Jeffery Robichaud, who faces additional narcotics counts.

"This case was solved directly because of information received from citizens that had seen the post on Sherman PD’s Facebook page," Hampton said. "It is a good example of the community and police coming together to help solve crime.
