Two Lodi residents were arrested Thursday after police detectives allegedly found counterfeit money and fake checks in their home.

Jason Hosking, 22, and Jennifer Pierstorffor, 23, were being held in the city jail and are expected to be arraigned in court today or Monday.

Lodi police went to a home in the 2000 block of Banyan Drive around 2:30 p.m. to follow up on a forgery case in which Pierstorffor may have been involved, Sgt. Steven Price said.

Because Hosking was living in the home and was on probation for narcotics violations, detectives were able to search it without a warrant. Hosking was soon arrested on an outstanding warrant and when detectives moved a laptop computer he'd been using, they saw a blank check on the screen, Price said.

Before long, detectives had confiscated what appeared to be sheets of fake $100 bills, fake driver's licenses, two computers, a scanner and five printers.

Some $100 and $5 bills had already been cut, though police did not know if any bills had been used, Price said.

At least one driver's license had apparently been laminated and completed -- though Price pointed out that a street name was spelled incorrectly.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
