A Port Chester man is accused of passing four fake $100 bills as he tried to make a purchase at supermarket, according to Port Chester police.
Mark Matthews, 24, of 17 River Road, Port Chester, was arrested about 2:47 p.m. Sunday at the Port Chester Pathmark store after he attempted to buy a prepaid Visa card for $350, police said. Store workers called police after they noticed all four $100 bills used to make the purchase had the same serial number.
Police said Matthews was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and he faces a hearing in Port Chester Village Court. Police said they notified the U.S. Secret Service about the incident and the charges against Matthews.
