BEND, OR -- A local transient is accused of making and passing counterfeit money in Bend. Police say at least six businesses received fake $50 bills in the past month.

 

Officers discovered a pattern and identified 24-year-old Travis Nelson as a suspect. Nelson was arrested earlier this month, and was allegedly in possession of a gun stolen in a Deschutes County burglary, as well as a suspected meth pipe. 

 

Bend Police and Sheriff’s Deputies later searched a Dobbin Court property, east of Bend, where they found computer and other equipment used to make counterfeit cash. Nelson faces seven counts of Forgery, as well as drug and weapons charges; more could be added.
