A Rock Island woman accused of printing counterfeit cash at home has been indicted on federal charges after she reportedly tried to use the money at a Bettendorf casino.

Sarah C. Belock, age unavailable, with a last known address of 1432 41st St., Rock Island, was arraigned Thursday in the U.S. District Court in Rock Island for unlawful possession of counterfeit currency.

She was released on bond, under the condition she does not enter any gambling establishments. A pretrial conference is scheduled for June 13.

A criminal complaint against Ms. Belock was filed in March after authorities allegedly found her and another woman trying to use counterfeit $10 bills at the Isle of Capri Casino, Bettendorf.

Police searched the vehicle Ms. Belock took to the casino and allegedly found her purse with multiple identity cards and a sheet of four uncut fake $10 bills. Records also say her cell phone contained pictures of printed $20 and $10 bills next to a black ink jet printer.

A search warrant was issued for her home, where police found a black printer, at least 38 fake $20 bills and "multiple scraps of cut and uncut counterfeit $10 Federal Reserve Notes," according to court records.
