WHITESBORO, Texas -- Two Whitesboro residents were arrested Thursday in connection with an alleged counterfeiting operation.

The Grayson County Sheriff's Office said 37-year-old Jimmy Fox and 39-year-old Nichole Greiss are both charged with forgery. Fox is also facing an additional narcotics charge.

Investigators said they received a tip Thursday from North Texas Crime Stoppers leading them to execute a search warrant at a business in the 1000 block of West US 82 in Whitesboro.

Deputies recovered equipment used to produce counterfeit currency and methamphetamine.

Capt. Sarah Bigham said area merchants should take extra care when handling currency.

"Take a good look at the bills presented by the way they feel and look, and always use the fraud pen just to be certain," she said in a written statement.

Bond was set at $35,000 for Fox and $15,000 for Greiss.
