JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -

A Moberly man was charged in federal court Wednesday for having counterfeit bills.

Kevin McCuiston, 36, is accused of having 49 fake $50 bills.

He was charged Wednesday by a federal grand jury in Jefferson City.

According to the indictment, McCuiston had the counterfeit bills in his possession on December 6, 2013.

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.
