WACO, Texas (AP) — Three people have been arrested and more suspects are sought in a Central Texas scam involving items on Craigslist purchased with counterfeit cash.

Waco police on Wednesday announced the arrest of two men and a woman on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity.

Police received at least two dozen complaints in an investigation since last June. The victims offered items, mostly electronics, via Craigslists then met the buyers, handed over the goods, were paid and later learned the cash was counterfeit.

McLennan County jail records show 30-year-old Tony Glenn Fisher and 41-year-old Dennis Glenn Bridger were being held on $100,000 bonds. Bond was set at $25,000 for 27-year-old Samantha Williams-Karcher. Online jail records don’t list attorneys for the trio from the Waco area.

The suspects were arrested last Friday.
