VALDOSTA — Two women were arrested Wednesday on drug and forgery charges, according to the sheriff's office.
Investigators with the Lowndes County Sheriff's Office were tipped off to illegal activity in a Baytree Road motel, according to a sheriff's office statement.
The women were in separate rooms, and investigators found 12 grams of methamphetamine and about $800 in counterfeit currency between the two rooms, according to the statement. The currency ranged from $1 bills to $100 bills, and a computer and printer believed to be used in manufacturing the currency were found, the statement said.
Anna Marie Wilson, 33, of Valdosta and Audrey Campbell, 47, of Debary, Fla., are charged with forgery and possession of methamphetamine, according to booking reports. They were taken to the Lowndes County Jail.
Investigators are working with the Secret Service on the case, and more arrests may be on the way, the statement said. The Secret Service is the federal agency tasked with investigating counterfeiting and other financial crimes.
