Longview, TX — Federal and local agencies worked together in August to bust a budding check counterfeiting ring that had printed and cashed thousands of dollars in fake payroll checks.
“This is one that we got to quick enough to basically cut the head off,” said Kristie Brian, spokeswoman for the Longview Police Department.
Four people were arrested in August in connection with a ring of forgers police said were led by Brian Harkless and his girlfriend, Shun Lnu.
Police said the ring operated from an apartment in the 500 block of Garden Lane in Henderson, but Brian said they tried to pass the checks in Longview stores.
