The group is suspected of passing counterfeit money in Canton from May through last Wednesday, Canton police spokeswoman Candy Worthy said in an emailed news release.
“It is believed that (the) group is also responsible for the same related crimes in other metro Atlanta counties including Douglas, Rockdale, Fulton, Paulding, Cobb, Gwinnett and Forsyth,” Worthy said.
Local and federal law enforcement authorities and corporate security officials are investigating the four suspects and others.
“These suspects targeted establishments such as Target and Belk, and shopping centers that contained multiple big name stores, such as the Canton Marketplace,” Worthy said. “The investigation is open and ongoing and additional arrests are pending.”
