Prosecutors say last March, Clarinda police were called to a convenience store for a fake bill. Police determined through surveillance video that Milledge had passed the counterfeit bill, and a search warrant was obtained for his home. Police say the search turned up numerous computers, printers, printer paper and approximately $35,000 in counterfeit bills in different stages of manufacturing.
