2 indicted on counterfeiting charges

COVINGTON - A federal grand jury indicted two people Wednesday who are accused of making fake money.

The indictment accuses David Mrazic and Sarah Penn of making 343 fake bills in denominations from $1 to $100.

Mrazic and Penn spent the bills in April at an In & Out Market in Kenton County and at a Grant County KFC, the indictment states. They were found with analog, digital and electronic images used to make the money, it says.

Mrazic and Penn face 15 counts of making counterfeit money, seven counts of passing counterfeit money, and 22 counts of aiding and abetting. If convicted they face 25 years in prison and $250,000 in fines.
