Millions in counterfeit cash seized at North Dakota border crossing

PEMBINA, ND (KFGO) – More than $3.5 million in counterfeit US currency was seized Friday by Customs and Border Protection officers at the Pembina port of entry.

Customs and Border Protection says agents working commercial cargo targeted a shipment described as toy guns.
An inspection of the shipment found nine toy guns, along with 36,000 counterfeit $100 bills.

I'd like to find out the back-tracing on this.
Who, what & where the counterfeit movement of money originated.

3. Some Whack-istani will have a racially-charged conniption fit about this

And demand that customs officials should be immediately re-deployed to the US—Mexican border to arrest desperate mothers and small children.

11. Looks like it was coming in


PEMBINA, N.D. — The U.S. Customs and Border Protection says its seized $3.6 million in counterfeit cash along North Dakota's border with Canada.

The agency initially targeted a commercial cargo of toy guns making its way through the Pembina Port of Entry last week. Officers found the shipment contained 36,000 fake $100 bills.

"Working with other federal partners, CBP officers were able to keep this counterfeit currency from entering into the economy," said Pembina Area Port Director Jason Schmelz.

The agency will destroy the counterfeit cash.

12. Here: Counterfeit was Canada into US. BUT, "no criminal charges ..."

WTF. Is this normal to not press charges?

At this time, the $3.6 million seized is not suspected to be a part of a larger operation, said Lakefield, noting that she doesn't expect any criminal charges will be pressed in the case.

The counterfeit currency seized Friday will be destroyed, according to CBP.


Pembina Area Port Director Jason Schmelz said in a statement that, by seizing the counterfeit money, it was kept from entering the U.S. economy.

"To have such a significant seizure on the 19th anniversary of 9/11 shows the commitment all of our officers have, not only today, but every single day they come to work, in order to keep our country safe from all threats," he said.
