Investigators later found 136 more fake 20-dollar bills hidden in the cover of a boat at his Indiana residence.
Stopkotte pleaded guilty in May.
At the time he purchased and used the counterfeit currency, Stopkotte was on supervised release for a 2014 federal conviction in Tennessee after he stole more than $66,000 by taking donation checks out of church mailboxes. He was sentenced to 26 months in prison, according to Glassman’s office.
