SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - A 23-year-old Bossier City man has pleaded guilty to making and selling counterfeit money.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley says Corey Crosby pleaded guilty Friday before U.S. District Judge Donald E. Walter, to making and selling counterfeit Federal Reserve notes.

Finley’s news release says authorities used a confidential informant to buy counterfeit money in the Shreveport-Bossier City area in June of 2013. Crosby was identified as the seller and manufacturer after the informant bought counterfeit money and uncut sheets of counterfeit money from him in denominations of $100, $20, and $10. Investigators also matched Crosby’s fingerprints to a printer used to manufacture the counterfeit notes.

Sentencing was set for May 22. Crosby could get up to 20 years for each of two counterfeiting charges.
