Macomb prank caller back behind bars

Alvin Montgomery.

The Macomb man guilty of dialing in a 911 hoax last year now faces forgery charges.

Alvin Montgomery was arrested Friday after police say he was making counterfeit money.

Authorities searched his apartment at 321 N. McArthur St., after they heard he had a counterfeit currency printer.

When they arrived at his home, police say they found the printer and remains from a small fire where Montgomery burned other evidence.

He is charged with obstructing justice, deceptive practice and forgery.

Montgomery was arrested in March 2013 after Macomb police responded to a 911 call from a woman claiming a man was in her house at 509 W. Murray St. with a gun.

After several hours with the house surrounded, police determined that no one was in the home.

Montgomery was charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice. Read the original story by clicking,
