High schoolers accused of printing fake cash

Two New Jersey high school students are accused of counterfeiting and selling the fake bills to classmates. Police say they are still trying to determine how much money the 16-year-old sophomore and 17-year-old junior at Colts Neck High School printed.

Detective Sgt. Joseph Whitehead says the boys sold the fake $10s and $20s in exchange for real cash in smaller denominations.

Officials say some of the money was used in the school cafeteria. Workers discovered the funny money and alerted school administrators, who called police.

The boys are charged with forgery and were released to their parents.

Their names have not been released because they are juveniles.
