Man Cauught With Million Dollars Worth Of Phony Money Orders Enters Guilty Plea In Simi Valley Case

Posted on Monday, July 16, 2012 6:58am


A man prosecutors say was caught with more than a million dollars in phony U.S. Postal Service money orders in his Simi Valley motorhome entered a guilty plea to 14 felony counts, from identity theft to possession of child pornography.

The Ventura County District Attorney’s office says Grant Lind was arrested for passing a forged check, but that when Simi Valley police searched the RV where the 49 year old man was living, found more than a thousand counterfeit money orders.

They say they also seized counterfeit driver’s licenses, checks, and computers with child pornography on them. Lind could face four year in state prison when he’s sentenced in August.

He’s also facing identity theft, and fraud charges in Los Angeles County.
