Two arrested in Delaware Park scam

Two people are arrested following an investigation into their alleged counterfeit cash scheme at Delaware Park.

Dorsey was arrested on July 15 and Irving was arrested on September 20 upon extradition from Pennsylvania where he was incarcerated on other charges.

Both were charged with 13 counts of Felony Forgery 1st, 5 counts of Felony Theft, and 2 counts of Felony Conspiracy 2nd.

She was arraigned in JP Court and released on $19,000 unsecured bond. He was arraigned in J.P. Court and released on $56,000 unsecured bond.
