A 25-year-old Bossier City man has been sentenced in Shreveport federal court to 37 months in prison for counterfeiting.  

Dakota Mallory Robinson will also be spending three years on supervised release.  He pled guilty in July of this year to making counterfeit Federal Reserve Notes.

Federal prosecutors say the case began to unfold back in February of this year when a maintenance worker at a Bossier City  duplex notified his manager that he had seen Robinson, through the open door of his apartment, making counterfeit money. That manager, in turn, notified Bossier City police.  Bossier Detectives searched Robinson's apartment on February 8th and found $2,020 worth of counterfeit $20 bills, a printer, uncut sheets of counterfeit $20 bills, and other related items.

Because the case involved counterfeit U.S. currency,  Bossier police turned the case over to the U-S Secret Service and the investigation progressed from there.
