COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A Hope, Idaho man was sentenced on Monday for manufacturing counterfeit currency.
Daniel Keith Snyder, 51, was sentenced to 12 months and one day in prison. That's to be followed by three months of home confinement and three years of supervised release.
Snyder was also ordered to pay $1,150 in restitution to counterfeit victims. He was indicted by a federal grand jury in January.
Snyder admitted to making counterfeit $50 bills that were used at businesses in Sandpoint and Ponderay. At least 46 bills were passed around before Snyder was arrested.
The Bonner County Sheriff's Office and a U.S. Secret Service agent served a search warrant at Snyder's home in January. They found a computer printer and other items that were used to make the fake bills.
