2 Marysville men, teen girl arrested in counterfeiting bust
An armed 17-year-old girl and two Marysville men were arrested over the weekend in Linda regarding an apparent counterfeiting operation.
Yuba County sheriff's deputies seized several computers and printers as well as multiple phony drivers' licenses and bogus cash.
"It was a fairly small operation they had going," said Lt. Shaun Smith.
Sean Michael Couch, 28, and Andre T. Price, 33, were arrested.
Couch, of the 2200 block of Foust Street in Marysville, was wanted on a felony firearms warrant and was said to be in a house in the 5600 block of Riverside Drive in Linda on Sunday afternoon, Sheriff Steve Durfor said in a statement.
Some of the phony identification cards were said to be in Couch's name.
Price, of the 1300 block of Gavin Drive in Marysville, was spotted outside the Linda house when deputies approached and told the deputies that nobody else was inside, officials said. Using a bullhorn, deputies ordered everybody out of the house.
A 17-year-old girl exited the house with a handgun in her waistband. Couch surrendered a short time later.
Couch was booked into the Yuba County Jail on the weapons warrant and for violating his probation. Price was jailed on suspicion of being an accessory to a crime.
The teenager was booked into Bi-County Juvenile Hall for weapons possession and violating her probation.
Investigators said additional charges may be forthcoming.
