Two Fresno residents were arrested on drug and counterfeit charges in San Luis Obispo Thursday morning.

San Luis Obispo police say officers were doing a patrol check at Motel 6, located at 1433 Calle Joaquin, around 6 a.m. when they found two people sleeping in a parked car.

Police say they contacted the two, identifying them as Michael Crocker, 37, and Melissa Fernandes, 46, and learned that Crocker was on felony probation in Fresno County.

From there, SLO police searched the car, and officers say they found "evidence of methamphetamine and heroin sales." Officers say they also found more than $2,000 in counterfeit money and "unfinished" counterfeit bills, along with printer and paper that police believe was used to print the bills.

Crocker faces two counts of possession of a controlled substance for sale and one count of forgery. Fernandes faces a charge of forgery. Both were booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail.

Anyone with information about these alleged crimes is asked to call the San Luis Obispo Police Department at (805) 781-7312 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.
