A Yates Center man accused of trying to pass counterfeit $100 bills at the Kansas State Fair has been charged with three felony counts of making false information.

Brian Beerbower, 30, who appeared Monday before Reno County Judge Randy McEwen, was arrested by the Kansas Highway Patrol on Sept. 13 at 2000 N. Poplar St. in Hutchinson, according to an arrest report. He has since posted bond and is scheduled to appear Oct. 6 in court for a status hearing.

Along with Beerbower, Bert Evans, 32, of Yates Center, was also arrested Sept. 13 on suspicion of making a false writing, but the Reno County District Attorney's Office has temporarily declined prosecution, McEwen said.

Kansas State Fair Manager Denny Stoecklein reported last week that some fairgoers tried to pass counterfeit $100 bills, and law enforcement brought in six people for questioning, with two subsequently arrested. The suspects allegedly bleached real $5 bills and then printed over the money. That means vendors couldn't detect the money was counterfeit with a marker.

However, the fair's bank, First National Bank, alerted Stoecklein to the problem. Stoecklein said holding the money up to the light will show the magnetic tape, which reads $5. The suspects were reportedly trying to purchase inexpensive items to get cash, he said.

I hear there are a lot of high-level police/fbi in town watching these idiots. Is that true? If so, I doubt that it will end up being just probation.

Brian Beerbower went to court last wednesday in Reno County I was there to witness first hand to him pleading guilty to all 3 felony charges! His sentencing hearing will be Dec. 10. Hopefully the justice system there isnt as crooked as some and he gets what he deserves. During his court he said he did not want a peliminary hearing and the judge told him that if he did want one and it ended up going to trial that all 12 members of the jury had to find him guilty for him to be guilty and he still did not want to do that so he out right plead guilty to the charges. Pretty sure after witnessing that it was fist pumping out of the court room for a few of us. I dont understand how that whole family gets away with the stuff that they do. But maybe someday they will all pay for what they have done and still do.

I hear he is supposed to get custody of his children back? What is up with that? Kids being taken care of by a 17 year old and a criminal. Oh also what about the sex offender that stays there also? So sad.

People do silly things sometimes and no one is perfect. Just because someone makes a mistake doesn't necessarily make them a bad person. I also think that it's pretty vulgar of people to make remarks and comments about about other people. It's one thing to post facts on this site but it's another when people post rediculous allegations and remarks about other people. It doesn't make you any better than person your talking about or anybody else. You should focus on your own lives not everybody else's.
