TWINFALLS-- Twin Falls Police say they've busted a sophisticated check counterfeiting operation.

Charges are pending against several people following the search of a home in west Twin Falls earlier this month.

Police have also seized check printing equipment, drugs and a gun.

They began investigating after several local retailers called saying they had been the victims of check fraud.

Police say what sets this case apart from more common check fraud investigations is the quality of the fake checks.
