A Hamden woman was arrested at 345 Old Gate Lane for allegedly renting a motel room and paying with a $10 and two $20 bills which were determined to be counterfeit.
Milford Police also located additional counterfeit currency inside a vehicle that was occupied by Nicole Melendez, age 30 of Hamden, and her male acquaintance.
Melendez was charged with first degree forgery and first degree conspiracy to commit forgery.
She was released on a promise to appear in court on December 11th.
