Possessed more than $8,600 worth of fake bills

ALEXANDRIA, La. – United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced that Raja Khalid Jamaleddin, 33, of Alexandria, was sentenced Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Dee D. Drell to 18 months in prison and three years of supervised release for possessing more than $8,600 worth of counterfeit dollar bills. He was also ordered to pay an $8,000 fine. Jamaleddin pleaded guilty June 18, 2013.

According to evidence presented at the guilty plea, authorities received information that Jamaleddin was keeping illegal items at a storage unit. Authorities searched a storage unit on October 5, 2012 that Jamaleddin was renting in Alexandria and found $8,648 worth of counterfeit $1,000s, $50s, $20s, and $2s in addition to other illegal items. The serial number on one of the counterfeit $1,000 bills matched a bill Jamaleddin pawned in 2011.

Homeland Security Investigations and the Alexandria Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney John Luke Walker prosecuted the case.
