Secret Service: Man Printed Fake Money at Home in Marietta

Heath Kellogg of Woodstock allegedly printed counterfeit money at home in Marietta.

A Woodstock man is among six individuals, including two Marietta residents, who have been charged with running a counterfeit money printing ring out of a home in Marietta, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Heath J. Kellogg, 36, allegedly used a printer to make fake bills, most of which were $50 bills.

According to the AJC, Kellogg and his cohorts started their operation in February 2011, and are accused of printing fake currency in the amount of $1.1 million. The counterfeit bills have been found in North Carolina, South Carolina and Florida. 

In November, a federal grand jury issued a seven-count indictment against Kellogg, Stacy P. Smith, 37 and Kellogg's father James C. Kellogg, 63, both of Marietta; 30-year-old Cameron R. Longshore and 27-year-old Ian J. Longshore of Decatur and 35-year-old Kenyada Barrion of Stone Mountain. 

All six have been charged with conspiracy to manufacture and distribute counterfeit U.S. currency.

Why don't these people counterfeit $1 and $5 bills? Cashiers don't check those. Every time I use a $20, they check it. I'm always worried that somehow I got hold of a counterfeit.
