EL PASO TEXAS-El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Strike Team members arrested a man in connection with a counterfeiting operation affecting a chain of retail stores throughout El Paso County. The manifold operation triggered a multi-week investigation by the Strike Team.
During the investigation, it was discovered that individuals would deprive retail stores of property then take the stolen goods to a residence where forged receipt(s) were manufactured in exchange for payment. The receipt(s) were fabricated with store information to include emblems then taken to the retail store where, if undetected, the individual would receive an exchange or refund for the stolen goods resulting in a financial benefit for those partaking in the operation.
ADAMS DELANER JR. was booked into the Detention Facility early this morning and charged with Forgery to include Possession of Dangerous Drug. No other information will be released at this time. The investigation continues.
DELANER ADAMS JR. (39)
