Two people were arrested last week in Sidney for making counterfeit money, following an operation of the Western Nebraska Intelligence and Narcotics Group’s Drug Task Force.
Acting on a tip received by a Nebraska State Trooper, WING investigators executed a search warrant at a residence at 2405 11th Ave. in Sidney on Thursday, July 5.
During the operation, investigators found items that were used to make counterfeit money.
Christopher Humphries, 32, of Denver and Jaclyn Greer-Humphries, 31, of Ft. Collins were both charged with first-degree forgery and possession of criminal devices.
During the arrest, Christopher Humphries threatened law enforcement officers, so he was also charged with making terroristic threats against an officer.
Both suspects were taken to the Cheyenne County Jail.
This operation was made possible with the help of the Sidney police and the Cheyenne County sheriff’s office, NSP spokesman Cody Thomas said.
