Two San Diego men were arraigned Thursday for producing counterfeit money, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.
Kevin Cave, 21, was forging $5, $10 and $20 bills from his house in San Diego. Cave printed the fake money from electronic images of genuine bills that he scanned onto his computer.
While working in a San Diego retail store, 32-year-old Erik Wallen passed roughly $31,500 worth of fake money through the business. Wallen printed images of $100 using his computer.
Cave is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 5 and is in custody of U.S. Marshals. Wallen is currently on pre-trial release and will appear in January.
Both men pled guilty and face a maximum of 20 years in prison with a potential $250,000 fine.
The cases are being investigated by federal agents with U.S. Secret Service.
