A federal grand jury Wednesday also charged a St. Joseph man with passing a counterfeit bill in Columbia last year, in a separate case.
Jackie Busey, 28, was arrested on October 25 near Fieldhouse Bar in Columbia. According to a news release on the charges, Busey had 47 fake $50 bills and 17 fake $100 bills in his possession at that time.
Both cases were investigated by the U.S. Secret Service, Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Columbia Police Department.
