IRON MOUNTAIN — A Kingsford woman faces felony charges for reportedly ordering counterfeit money through the internet and using it at businesses in the Iron Mountain-Kingsford area over the past several months.

Amanda Jo Rose, 23, has an April 2 probable cause conference and an April 9 preliminary examination in Dickinson County District Court on using a computer to commit a crime, a seven-year felony, and uttering and publishing counterfeit bills or notes, a five-year felony.

She will be represented by attorney Andrea Mashak. Bond was set at $5,000 cash or surety.

Authorities identified a second suspect in the scheme, but that person is from a foreign country, had overstayed his visa and was turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol, according to a press release issued Friday from the Dickinson County Prosecutor’s Office.
