Pizza Pie Makes Printer Flip Passions —Cagle
Rhind, 42, of Florida, was busted in Bridgeton, MO, following a traffic stop. Police found meth-lab components, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, along with a laptop, two printers, paper and rolls of tape—sure signs of a counterfeiter. Police also found Rhind and Roberson to be in possession of bogus bills.
Rhind, who has drifted since 1999 (except for a four-year prison stretch on a previous counterfeiting conviction) estimates he printed nearly $900,000 worth of funny money. He passed the money to pay for drug materials, drugs, motel bills and, apparently, hotcakes and sausages.
Rhind was told he would have to pay restitution to Waffle House and other verified victims.
That's the least of Rhind's problems. He faces up to 25 years in jail when sentenced Feb. 25. Roberson pleaded guilty in October and is scheduled to be sentenced this month.
See what happens when the quality of print suffers? You become doomed to the life of a gypsy drug dealer. PI —Erik Cagle
