A Stockton resident accused of counterfeiting more than $12,000 was indicted on three counts in federal court Thursday.

Francisco Baptista Moreira, 38, faces 25 years in prison if found guilty of manufacturing and selling fake U.S. currency.

The indictment is a result of an investigation by the Stockton and Fremont police departments and the U.S. Secret Service, according to the United States Attorney’s Office.
