Authorities in Indianapolis have arrested a man they call the "mastermind" behind the most sophisticated counterfeit operation they've ever seen. Authorities say this man, Brandon Clark, is facing federal charges for making more than a quarter-million dollars worth of money in his home during a three-month period. They also say most of the bills he made were $100 bills he sold for $20 each. Information from two informants helped investigators make the arrest. When they searched Clark's home they say they found meth, guns, and high quality printers, paper cutters and special inks. Investigators say the fake bills have even popped up in Kentucky and Ohio. Clark is facing up to 20 years in federal prison if he's found guilty. Two other people were arrested in connection to the counterfeit operation, but are not facing federal charges at the moment.
