WICHITA, Kansas – Five Kansas residents are facing federal charges accusing them of counterfeiting or trying to pass fake $100 bills.

Prosecutors on Tuesday charged 47-year-old John Stark and 24-year-old Deona McNutt of Great Bend, and 30-year-old Alyssa Dannebohm and 22-year-old Keith Dannebohm of Hutchinson, with counterfeiting.

They also charged 30-year-old Justin Herren of Great Bend with one count of passing two $100 bills.

A complaint filed against Stark says the defendants photocopied a number of bills between June and November and tried to pass them.

Stark also was charged with three additional counts of making counterfeit $10, $20 and $50 bills, and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

A public defender listed for Stark didn’t immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
