JONES CO., Miss. - Officials are looking for Jason Creel of the Ovett community. He is wanted for being part of a five person counterfeit money operation. 

The four others involved in the operation are Melissa Creel, David Wade, Shawn Wade, and Lleland Wade. All four were arrested and charged with forgery after businesses reported fake one-hundred and twenty-dollar bills being used.

Officials searched the vehicles and homes of the arrested, and seized over two-thousand dollars of counterfeit money, a printer and laptops that were used to make the money.

If you have any information regarding Creel's location, please contact Jones County Sheriff's Department.
