2 arrested for counterfeiting, forgery at Peru convenience store


PERU, Ind. (WISH) – Indiana State Excise Police arrested two men Thursday following an investigation into counterfeit goods and drug sales at a convenience store.

Peru Stop & Go store owner Amin Ali Saleh has been charged with counterfeiting. Khalil Ali Saleh faces forgery and counterfeiting charges.

A third man, Yassin Ali Shayef Saleh remains wanted in connection with the investigation on forgery and counterfeiting charges.

A four-month investigation into the potential sale of counterfeit goods led to authorities serving a search warrant at the Stop & Go on West Main Street on March 26. During that search, police seized 20 grams of what they suspected to be synthetic marijuana, as well as hundreds of items of paraphernalia and an undisclosed amount of cash.

Anyone with more information on this case is asked to contact the Indiana State Excise Police at (765) 362-8815.
