Quote: Bend police have arrested a pair of 17-year-old boys and accused them of selling artificial gold bars as the real thing to unsuspecting customers.
The suspects received over $50,000 in cash and other goods for the artificial gold, according to a Bend Police Department news release. Bend police recovered some of the money used to purchase the artificial gold bars.
The suspects were arrested Tuesday at their homes in Bend and jailed in the Deschutes County Juvenile Department.
I'm not sure whether to be surprised or not by the fact that they found so many willing buyers. So many red flags.
