An Albert Lea couple was sentenced Tuesday for participating in a counterfeit ring, according to the Pioneer Press.
Travis Cameron, 31, and wife Heather Cameron, 34, pleaded guilty to counterfeiting U.S. currency, according to the Star Tribune. The couple was sentenced to a year in prison each, the Star Tribune said.
Heather Cameron confessed to washing and bleaching $5 bills and reprinting them as $100 bills, according to the Pioneer Press.
Louis Stephens, in charge of the local office of the U.S. Secret Service, said that the process the pair used to counterfeit the currency is sophisticated and requires some expertise to complete, according to the Star Tribune.
