Felton man arrested for passing counterfeit money

HARRINGTON – Martino D. Proctor, 23 of the 600 block of Irish Hill Rd. in Felton, was arrested April 3 by the Harrington Police Department after he attempted to use counterfeit money at the Hardees located on Milford-Harrington Highway.

While on patrol, officers responded to the Hardees for a fraud complaint. When police arrived, they contacted employees who reported that Proctor came in the store and attempted to purchase food with counterfeit money. They also reported that he has attempted this twice before.

Employees were able to obtain a registration number for the vehicle he left in, which is how police identified him as the suspect, according to Captain Kenny Brode.

Police obtained a warrant for Proctor. He later turned himself in to the Harrington Police Department and was charged with manufacturing, displaying or distributing counterfeit currency. He was processed and arraigned via video phone at Justice of the Peace 2 and released on $500 unsecured bond.
