Poor quality fake money found at Angola

2 years ago February 01, 2013 Feb 1, 2013 Friday, February 01 2013 Friday, February 01, 2013 3:05:05 PM EST in News

ANGOLA- Four inmates at the State Penitentiary were busted for printing fake 100, 20, and 10-dollar bills.

Sources tell WBRZ News 2 that the group was using a printer in the metal fabrication plant to make the phonies, which were "very poor quality."

Federal authorities, including the U.S. Secret Service, are investigating. So far, no one has confirmed if any of the funny money made it out of the prison.

In addition to protecting the President of the United States, the Secret Service also investigates counterfeit money.

More on this case on News 2 at 6:00 and later on WBRZ.com.
