Sgt. Lyle Waterworth says the tip led local and federal authorities to search a home on the city's west side on Thursday where they found evidence of counterfeiting and arrested one person. The person's name has not been released.

Waterworth says officers also found evidence of identity fraud in the home. He says the U.S. Secret Service and a state identity theft task force joined Jonesboro police in the investigation.
