An Eagle man has been sentenced to 30 months in prison after admitting to his role in a counterfeiting operation.

According to court records, Joseph Bylow, 32, and Rachel Eyskens, 24, were sentenced for manufacturing phony $1, $5, $10 and $50 bills. When Ada County sheriff's deputies raided the Eagle home of Bylow and Eyskens in August 2015, they discovered stacks of the fake bills and counterfeiting equipment. Detectives said some of the counterfeit money had been passed to local gas stations, restaurants, and grocery and retail stores.
