BEAVERTON, Ore. (AP) - Police in Beaverton, Oregon, arrested a couple accused of passing counterfeit money in three states.

Spokesman Mike Rowe says 31-year-old Clinton Curry and 26-year-old Sabrina Acedo were stopped Tuesday, and investigators who searched their car found a stolen gun and $31,000 in fake cash.

Police had been looking for the vehicle since getting a report about counterfeit bills two weeks ago.

Rowe says the suspects would use the phony money to buy expensive merchandise and then return the items at a different store to get real cash. They allegedly hit stores in Arizona, Oregon and their home state of California.

Curry and Acedo were booked into jail on charges of meth possession and possessing a forged instrument. Curry was also charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
