Yankton Duo Arrested On Multiple Charges

A pair of Yankton men have been arrested this week in Norfolk Nebraska after a forgery investigation turned up suspected meth.

On Tuesday afternoon, Norfolk police responded to a business in Norfolk regarding two subjects making fake receipts to steal money from skill games located inside the business.

Norfolk Police Captain Michael Bauer says that employees advised that there were two males in the business and that they had forged skill game vouchers a few months before at another store location. The employee was concerned that the men would try it again.

Officers had contact with the two men. They were identified as 40-year-old William Rainer and 42-year-old Anthony Kent, both of Yankton. During the investigation, officers learned that they each had cashed alleged winning vouchers in at least two stores in Norfolk.

Bauer adds that police recovered a printer, scanner, receipt paper, printer paper, ink, multiple blank vouchers, and a glass pipe that tested positive for suspected methamphetamine.

Both men were arrested on suspicion of criminal possession of a written instrument forgery device, second-degree forgery, and possession of a controlled substance.
