Lubbock Police need your help in putting an end to an elaborate counterfeit check and drug ring.

Four women are behind bars for passing counterfeit checks at local businesses and using that money to buy equipment to build Meth labs. The suspects are also accused of forgery and stealing cars. Chandra Kay Gabel, Sally N. Riney, Brenda Sue Mercer, and Marcella Dell Moseley are facing various charges in connection with this crime ring. Police say they were using counterfeit checks in the name of the Hockley and Garza County Sheriff's Departments and the Lubbock Inmate Fund.

Sgt. Keith Woodard says those involved with the crime ring were making up to $2,000 a day in Lubbock County. And he says, we must all do our part to make sure these types of crimes stop. "The citizens need to understand that if businesses do not take fingerprints or at least check an ID, then they're actually funding the crime because what they're doing is taking money from forgery and funding narcotic activity."

Police are still looking for three men believed to be involved with this crime ring. They are Billy Joe Barry, Albert Jacob Faber, and Bobby Wayne Cowley.

If you have any information on the suspects's whereabouts, call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
