Local Counterfeit Money Ring Uncovered By Beaufort & Carteret Authorities

Authorities discovered a local counterfeit money ring and busted three people for allegedly being involved.

Kendall Walbert, Richard Murphrey and Daniel Smith have been arrested. That's after police got several calls from businesses in Beaufort and Carteret county, reporting they had received fake bills.

Those calls led police to search a residence on Marst Street where they found a paper cutter used to cut the bills, a computer, and some marijuana.

Walbert was inside the home at the time of the search and was arrested, Murphrey was arrested earlier in the day, and Mathis later turned himself in.

    To Your Kid's Professor Who do you think you are? You aren't no better than these boys, you probably grew up with a silver spoon in your mouth. You people who think you are so much better than everyone else disgusts me, and by the way I personally don't know these young men but I know someone that does and yes they do have jobs. I would be surprised if you get a job when you graduate UNC with your horrible attitude. Glad you are out of Carteret County!!!!!!!

    get over yourself greenville robert. your passive aggressiveness is boring me. quit whining and be active if the gov't bothers you so much. i know a couple of these boys - they are notorious for doing stupid things, and they are pathetic losers who put their parents through hell. they are disrespectful and hold themselves like the plebeians they are. the people who know them laughed over this because one of the places that discovered their deceit was a fast food joint. how quaint. besides, if you are going to counterfeit you should at least do a little research first (perhaps a laser printer and regular paper aren't the best options? oh, that's right...they can't afford the proper equipment nor cotton "paper" because they don't have jobs!). hahaha. losers are still losers, and these boys are top notch redneck good-for-nothings of carteret county. i grew up there and ran away as soon as i could. yay for having ambitions and goals (and a brain not linked to pirate genealogy)!

    To Robert- Hello? Why should these losers be able to print money to spend on what they want because they are to sorry to get a job? Sure, I would love some free money too, but what is the possibility of that happening? Get a Job Boys!

    Like Robert said, they might as well let us all print our own money. Obama sure doesn't mind spending it. I hear he took something like 500 people with him to Europe. Oh yeah but I'm sure it was all absolutely necessary....NOT!!!!

    Funny, the government can print money they have no backing for and it is a stimulous. If we print any it is a crime.
