Brothers indicted in alleged counterfeit conspiracy
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Two brothers have been indicted in federal court for allegedly conspiring to counterfeit money and maintaining a marijuana growing operation out of an Oklahoma City home.
Federal prosecutors unsealed an indictment on Friday against 33-year-old Daniel Timothy Johnson and 31-year-old Benjamin Lee Johnson. Prosecutors announced additional charges against Daniel Johnson, including possessing a firearm and ammunition after a prior felony conviction.
Benjamin Johnson was arrested Friday and appeared before a federal judge later in the day. Investigators say Daniel Johnson remains at large and is considered a fugitive.
Attorney information for Benjamin Johnson wasn’t listed in court records.
The indictment alleges the brothers used computer software and other technology to digitally manipulate images of U.S. currency.
