169 charges have been laid against four people after a lengthy investigation into property crime in Fairview allegedly uncovered a large scale forgery and counterfeit operation.
Several RCMP units in Fairview executed a search warrant on a rural property in the area on December 6th, and once inside they report finding personal government identification, cheque books, passports, documents, as well as forged ID and cheques.
30-year-old Kailey Peterschein of Clairmont is facing a plethora of charges, including 46 counts of possession of a forged document, six counts of possession of counterfeit currency, and 95 counts of failure to comply.
39-year-old Kristi Patricia Summers of Grande Prairie, 35-year-old Marcus John Moore of Spirit River, and 42-year-old Peter Josef Mares of Calgary are each charged with two counts of possession of stolen property.
Summers, Moore, and Mares have been released on bail, while Peterschein remains in custody. All four are expected to appear in Fairview Provincial Court on January 8th.
