Man to plead to sending Uganda-made counterfeits in mail

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A man nicknamed "Bullionaire" has been scheduled to plead guilty before a federal judge in Pittsburgh to charges he mailed $5,200 in counterfeit $100 bills from North Carolina to Los Angeles.

That man, Robert T. Dent, is being prosecuted in Pittsburgh because that's where some of the other bogus bills were passed.

A man named Ryan Gustafson has been jailed on charges he printed at least $1.4 million worth of high-quality counterfeit bills when he live in Uganda, then sold and shipped them to people like Dent through an encrypted Internet site.

Dent's attorney didn't immediately return a call for comment on Dent's plea, which was scheduled for Thursday afternoon.

Dent allegedly shipped $5,200 worth of $100 bills Gustafson made from Fayetteville, North Carolina in May 2014.
