Man, 30, Woman, 31, latest people facing forgery, fraud charges for producing fake bus passes

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.
