MILWAUKEE, Wisc. Federal agents have broken up a counterfeit money ring that authorities say took small bills and made them into big ones by bleaching and then reprinting them passing more than $92,000 of the phony cash, according to a 29-count indictment unsealed Tuesday.

Fourteen people, ages 18 to 49, were apprehended over the past two weeks by U.S. Secret Service and Milwaukee police. Authorities are looking for a final suspect, Joseph "CK" Nash, 20, who is accused of making and passing the bills. Anyone with information is asked to call the U.S. marshals at (414) 297-3587.
