A man is arrested during an on-going counterfeit money investigation by Evansville Police.

Police say 34-year-old Brian Acker, of Evansville, was arrested on Forgery charges after officers found $740 in counterfeit $20 bills in his home. 

Officers received a tip that Acker was involved in the recent increase of fake bills being circulated in the Evansville area.

Authorities say while serving a search warrant at Acker's home at 842 Jackson, officers seized the counterfeit bills.

Investigators believe Acker received the fake money from another individual, but that he was aware that the money was counterfeit.

Police say the investigation into the counterfeiting operation is on-going and more arrests are expected.
