Mt. Juliet police have arrested a Florida man accused in a counterfeiting and theft operation that targeted multiple states in the southeast.

Jason Quintanilla, 38, was arrested after allegedly attempting to purchase several electrical generators with a counterfeit check.

Other stolen generators were found in the man's vehicle, police said.

Police said Quintanilla participated in a large criminal operation that involved pre-printed counterfeit checks intended to purchase generators. The group would then sell the generators in bulk and ship them out of the country.

Quintanilla is charged with four counts of criminal simulation, theft under $500, theft over $1,000 and possession of drug paraphernalia.
