Federal investigators looking into the counterfeit money reports then located that car on Dayton Lakeview Road and stopped it with assistance from state troopers. Investigators alleged both suspects were found in the car with counterfeit money.
Both suspects pleaded not guilty in Clark County Municipal Court on Wednesday and their bonds were set at $15,000. They will have to wear GPS monitors upon release from jail. Neither was listed as an inmate at the Clark County Jail on online records on Thursday afternoon.

The Clark County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Postal Inspection assisted with the case as well.
One Clark County resident said she’s not surprised to hear about counterfeit money in the area. Katy Michaels works at a restaurant and sees it sometimes.
“There was a bleached $5 bill (someone was) trying to pass as a $50,” Michaels said. “I was just kind of shocked, somebody really took the time to do this and then they expected nobody to notice.”
She’s been taught to check the bills for strips embedded in them and to pay attention to the fell of the cash, Michaels said.
