WACO, TX (KXXV) - Police have arrested three people from the Waco area who are accused of buying items off of Craigslist using counterfeit money.

Dennis Glenn Bridger, 41, Tony Glenn Fisher, 29, and Samantha Williams-Karcher, 27, were arrested for engaging in organized crime, 2nd degree felony. All three were transported to the McLennan County Jail. Bridger also had a warrant for failure to appear on a DWI 3rd or more charge that was issued out of Grimes County on January 16.

According to Waco police, a Waco detective began investigation several cases of people using counterfeit money to buy items in June 2013. The investigation showed that people were buying mostly electronic items from people off of Craigslist using fake money.
