Man buys phones with movie prop money

Middletown police are looking for a man who bought cell phones with three $100 bills that were marked “For Motion Picture Uses” only, according to a report.

Two people told police officers last week they were selling iPhones, case and charger on the website Letitgo. They made a deal with a man to sell the items for $260, the report read. And receiving $300, the people gave the man $40 in change. Then he took off running down Minnesota Avenue.

Police were unable to find the man matching the suspect’s description.
