WACO - 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.

Police say they received at least 24 cases of people using the same scheme. People would contact the seller, set up a location to buy the item, then buy it using counterfeit money. The investigation done by Det. Clark with Waco PD, led to the arrests of Bridger, Fisher, and Williams-Karcher.

Bridger and Williams-Karcher were arrested in the parking lot of the Family Dollar located in the 1400 block of N 34th St. on January 17. The US Marshall's Fugitive Task Force and Waco PD Patrol Units assisted with the arrests. Police say Fisher was arrested a short time later in the 2700 block of Ethel Ave.

Police say additional arrests could be coming in these cases.
