A Bossier City man has plead guilty in Shreveport Federal Court to charges of making and selling counterfeit money.  

23-year-old Corey Crosby entered his plea before Federal Judge Don Walter.  When he’s sentenced in May, Crosby could face up to 20 years in federal prison, three years of supervised release, restitution, and a fine of up to $250,000 for one count of counterfeiting obligations or securities.  He will also face the same possible penalties for one count of dealing in counterfeit obligations or securities.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley says investigators used a confidential informant to buy counterfeit money in the Shreveport/Bossier area back in June of last year.  That informant was able to buy counterfeit money and uncut sheets of counterfeit money in denominations of $10, $20, and $100 from a man later identified as Crosby.  Investigators also matched Crosby’s fingerprints to a printer believed used to manufacture the counterfeit notes.

The investigation involved the Shreveport office of the U.S. Secret Service, the Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office, the Shreveport Police Department, and the Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon B. Brown prosecuted the case.
