SIOUX CITY | A Le Mars, Iowa, man has pleaded not guilty to using counterfeit cash at Sioux City's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Kurt Jones, 26, entered his written plea Friday in Woodbury County District Court to one count of forgery. His trial was scheduled for Nov. 28.

Jones was arrested last month after an investigation showed that he, Jackelen Hartsock and Brittany Derby had made several cash transactions at the casino on Aug. 5. The bills were later found to be counterfeit.

Hartsock, 27, of Le Mars, has pleaded not guilty to forgery and is scheduled to stand trial Nov. 14.

Derby, 29, of Le Mars, has yet to be arraigned on a forgery charge.
