Port Richey, Florida -- A Port Richey man was arrested over the weekend for forging Federal Reserve Notes out of his bedroom.

Pasco Sheriff's deputies say Jody Barone used about 10 printers to produce numerous counterfeit Federal Reserve Notes (FRN's) in all denominations from $1 to $100. 

During a search of his home in the 11000 block of Tyler Drive, deputies found the printers, parent bills and copies of them on the copying plate of several of the printers. He also had a shredding machine in his bedroom which was full of counterfeit shreddings, along with materials to help make the bills including gold metallic paint, paper cuttings and a booklet on how to make counterfeit FRN's. 

Barone, 33, was also in possession of dozens of counterfeit notes on the floor of his room, in drawers, in the printers and on his person.

Deputies say after his arrest Barone admitted to owning all of the printers in his room.

He was charged with forging federal reserve notes and possessing forged notes.
