A Bossier City man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for the production and sale of counterfeit Federal Reserve notes.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced the sentencing Thursday for 23-year-old Corey Crosby.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea on Feb. 21, Crosby was identified as the seller and manufacturer of counterfeit money in the Shreveport/Bossier City area in June 2013.

Crosby sold the counterfeit money and uncut sheets of counterfeit money in denominations of $100, $20, and $10.

Investigators matched Crosby's fingerprints to a printer used to manufacture the counterfeit notes. He was previously convicted on state charges in Caddo Parish for forgery in Nov. 2012.
