Minot man arrested on federal counterfeit charges

MINOT, N.D. — A North Dakota man is accused of using counterfeit money to gamble in bars.

Joshua Jones, of Minot, has been indicted in federal court on a pair of counterfeiting charges. Authorities say he gambled with $950 in bogus bills at two Minot bars on June 19.

A federal affidavit says police identified Jones at the second bar after employees at the first bar gave a description that included a swastika tattoo on his neck.

A federal public defender was not available for comment.

Arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 31.
