(KSL News) Times were tough, and now they're even tougher for a man and his fiancee.

The Deseret Morning New reports 45-year-old Neal Rust and 24-year-old Lisa Betts are being held in jail on 277 counts of forgery between the two of them.

Early Wednesday police raided Rust's trailer in Roosevelt on a tip from an informant. They found 116 counterfeit bills, several computers, scanners, a printer and ink that allegedly were used to print counterfeit money.

Betts reportedly told investigators the counterfeiting happened because "times were tough."
