MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A man and a woman are facing charges in an alleged counterfeit money-making operation in southwestern Oregon.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2d4UE4k ) that 36-year-old Joel David Wurch, of White City, and 32-year-old Jennifer Lynn Statham, of Grants Pass, have been charged with 10 counts of possession of a forged instrument.

Wurch pleaded not guilty to the charges Wednesday and Statham will be arraigned later this month.

Police say they found printers, paper cutters and a container of counterfeit money on Sept. 19 at Wurch’s home, where he lived with Statham.

Wurch remains held in the Jackson County Jail on $70,000, while Statham was released after posting $7,500 bail.
