Fargo Police Arrest Woman in Counterfeiting Case

Posted: Updated:

The Fargo Police Department arrested a woman on Tuesday, April 23, following an investigation into the manufacturing and distribution of counterfeit money.

More than $200 in the counterfeit funds used on April 17 and 18 were recovered from six Fargo businesses with additional bills still likely in circulation. While viewing surveillance video from one of the effected businesses, a FPD detective noticed the suspect was standing behind an off-duty law enforcement officer. The FPD detective contacted the officer and the officer was able to identify the suspect as a result of prior dealings with her.

On Monday April 22, the Fargo Police Department executed a search warrant at the suspect's home and recovered over $2,000 in completed or partially completed counterfeit bills. The quality of the counterfeit bills was relatively good but they did have noticeably blurred images and all the bills lacked legitimate currency indicators such as security strips, watermarks and colored threads.

Tory Renee Ziegelman, 26, of Fargo was arrested for Counterfeiting (class B felony with a maximum penalty of 10 years imprisonment and/or $10,000 fine), Felony Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Possession of a Controlled Substance (both class C felonies with a maximum penalty of 5 years imprisonment and/or $5,000 fine).

Ziegleman was already in the custody of the Cass County Jail on unrelated charges at the time of her arrest. Additional arrests in the future are possible.

The bills included denominations from $1 to $50 dollars utilizing the following serial numbers:
