A Casper man will avoid time behind bars, after admitting that he was making counterfeit money.

Alexander Locicero was given a two-to-four year suspended prison sentence, with three years of probation, after he pleaded guilty to one charge of possession of forged writing and forgery devices.

Investigators with the Casper Police Department say in January, a pizza delivery employee informed them that she had received two counterfeit $20 bills from a recent delivery.

She was able to tell that the paper did not feel right, and both bills had the same serial number.

When police found the man that they were looking for, Locicero removed a stack of folded bills from his pocket, which all had the same serial number.

He then admitted to what he had done, saying he had a printer and scanner and other equipment to make the bogus money, which was later seized by police.

Locicero added that the pizza delivery was the only time he had used the counterfeit money, before he got caught.
