Police have released the name of a second suspect allegedly involved in a counterfeiting operation. The whereabouts of 24-year old Nima Sedaghaty Blue aren't know, though he does have ties to Ashland and Portland.
$3,000 in counterfeit cash was discovered at the Motel 6 on Alba Drive last Saturday morning. 24-year old Kyle Bennett was arrested when he and Blue returned for the fake money. When the pair saw police at the hotel, they quickly got out of the Jeep Cherokee they had arrived in and fled. While Bennett was caught, Blue got away.
The abandoned Jeep contained evidence, including computers, printers and more counterfeit money.
Blue is described as 6-feet-2 inches tall, 220 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Call the Medford Police at (541) 770-4783 with any information you may have.
