Local teen charged in counterfeit scheme

Greenville – 18-year-old Bryan Lomeli, of Greenville, remained in custody Friday on one count of forgery of a government document. A bond hearing is set for Monday.

Police were dispatched to a residence in the 3800 block of Washington St. late last month where they found items allegedly used to make counterfeit currency.

The seizure came after police were contacted by investigators with the U.S. Department of Secret Service. The federal agency had arrested an individual in Grand Prarie, who named Lomeli as a counterfeiter.
