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.
