BROOKFIELD -- A 56-year-old Brookfield man has been arrested as the result of an investigation into the passing of counterfeit U.S. currency in Seymour earlier this year.
The charges stem from a March search of Swanson's residence by Seymour and Brookfield police, along with Secret Service agents, that was triggered after he allegedly passed phony Federal Reserve notes in Seymour in February.
The search uncovered evidence Swanson was involved in the production and passing of the bills, police said.
He is charged with 21 counts of first-degree forgery and 21 counts of sixth-degree larceny, police said.
