Four people from California and Arizona arrested in Overland Park have been charged with passing counterfeit money.
The charges stem from an investigation by Overland Park police that began after a woman allegedly paid for a hotel room with counterfeit $20 bills.
She and her three co-defendants were arrested Tuesday and charges were filed Thursday in Johnson County District Court.
Courtney Campbell, 37, of Bouse, Ariz., and Steven Escamilla, 30, John Sebestyen, 49, and Jonathan Washington, 33, all of California, are each charged with a count of counterfeiting less than $25,000.

Bond for each was set at $100,000.
