Tuesday, Dec. 14: A joint investigation between the Cherokee Sheriff's Office and U.S. Secret Service resulted in the arrest of two individuals near Bells Ferry Road and Highway 92 in Acworth.

A local business owner contacted the Cherokee Sheriff's Office two weeks prior and reported that the two suspects approached him about laundering large quantities of counterfeit money. The suspects claimed they could provide up to $2 million in counterfeit money in exchange for real currency at a rate of 50 cents on the dollar.

Investigators arranged an undercover meeting between the business owner and the suspects to further discuss the transaction. While monitoring the conversation, investigators determined that the suspects were proposing a scam in which they trade white paper for real cash.

The scammers explained that, when treated with certain chemicals, the paper transformed into high quality counterfeit cash.
