Computer criminal busted

Date: July 18, 2006

An Afton man has been arrested in connection with a counterfeit money crime that occurred last October.

Kenneth Richard Harrison, 44, of Montgomery Road in Afton was arrested on Sunday by troopers from the Cheboygan Post of the Michigan State Police, according to a news release from the Cheboygan Post.

Harrison was arrested on charges of conspiracy to counterfeit money, computer crime involving counterfeit money, possession of counterfeit money, attempted possession of counterfeit money and being a habitual offender, said Detective Sgt. Ronald Nightingale.

The State Police and Tuscarora Township Police Department investigated the passing of a counterfeit $100 bill at the Indian River Trading Post on Oct. 28, 2005, Nightingale said. Harrison is suspected of manufacturing counterfeit money at his home using his home computer, the detective reported.

Harrison was arraigned before the 89th District Court on Monday. Bond was set at $50,000 and his preliminary exam is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. July 26 at the Cheboygan County Building. He remained in the Cheboygan County Jail, Nightingale said.
