Man Charged in Morton County with Counterfeiting


A 19-year-old man is charged with forgery or counterfeiting in Morton County.

Sheriff Dave Shipman says Semen Pichinevskiy was arrested Friday following an investigation.

Two counterfeit twenty dollar bills had been passed in both Mandan in Morton County earlier this month.

Pichinevskiy bought something from a woman in northern Morton County.

When she went to deposit the money, the cashier noticed something strange with the bills.

Shipman says the bills look authentic but have a waxy feel.

An investigation led police to the 19-year-old.

Shipman says he is originally from Seattle, had been living in Dickinson, but was staying with friends in northwest Mandan while he made the fake bills.

The counterfeiting charge is a class 'c' felony.

Pichinevskiy appeared in court Tuesday and has been released on $500 bond.

Shipman says he's not aware of a connection to counterfeit money that has been found in Bismarck.
