SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A 38-year-old Sioux City man has pleaded not guilty in a counterfeiting case.

The Sioux City Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1Yr1SyK ) that Fernando Morales entered the plea Monday to seven counts of forgery and other crimes. His trial is scheduled to begin May 24.

Authorities say Morales used the counterfeit bills himself or gave the bills to others. He’d run away when confronted about the fakes.

Court documents say police found sheets of fake currency, a printer, sheets of test bills and counterfeit money cut to size at a Sioux City motel on Sept. 28. The documents say fingerprints on the printer and on the money were matched to Morales.
