OLIVE BRANCH, Miss. — Two men are facing forgery charges after an Olive Branch officer pulled them over for speeding and uncovered a forgery business.
“It goes to show that no stop is routine. Everything can be something of importance,” Major Bill Cox with Olive Branch Police Department said.
An officer pulled over suspects Bryan Connor Herrell and Ralston Boswell near Craft Goodman Frontage and Highway 302 Wednesday morning.
The officer believed there could possibly be drugs in the vehicle and called for a K9 officer. The dog alerted, so officers searched the car.
They found numerous fake cards, equipment to make them, cash, and other items.
Major Cox said the department worked with the Secret Service and West Memphis, Arkansas, in this investigation.
He believes the men have been in other states before Mississippi.
Major Cox said one of the suspects admitted to smoking marijuana before the stop, which is probably why the K9 alerted on the car.
Both men are charged with Uttering Forgery.
