JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Tammy Dickinson, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Moberly, Mo., man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for possessing and passing counterfeit $50 bills.
Kevin Glenn McCuiston, 37, of Moberly, was charged in a two-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City. Today’s superseding indictment replaces a Feb. 12, 2014, federal indictment that contained one count of possessing counterfeit $50 bills.
Today’s indictment contains the original allegation that McCuiston was in possession of 49 counterfeit $50 bills on Dec. 6, 2013. McCuiston is also charged with passing four counterfeit $50 bills and five counterfeit $10 bills on Dec. 2, 2013.
Dickinson cautioned that the charges contained in this indictment are simply accusations, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charges must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.
This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Lauren Kummerer. It was investigated by the U.S. Secret Service and the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
