Halifax police say two people have been charged for producing fake bus passes.  

Police said they launched an investigation last May, after a number of fake Metro Transit passes started to surface around the city.

Then on Friday, police searched a home at the 100-block of Drysdale road, and seized several items they say were used to produce the fraudulent passes.

A 30-year-old-man and a 31-year-old woman were arrested without incident. They each face four fraud-related charges of forgery; possession of instruments of forgery; transferring, selling and offering a forged document; and possessing a forged document with intent.

They were released from custody and will appear in Halifax Provincial Court on July 25.

Police say a 40-year-old man was arrested 10 days ago in Dartmouth as part of the same incident, and also faces a number of fraud-related charges.

Police said this was the second search conducted in relation to the ongoing fraud investigation. A 40-year-old man was arrested on June 14 in Dartmouth and also faces a number of fraud-related charges.
