Hutchinson man on parole for counterfeiting arrested again

Posted: Updated:

Authorities have arrested a 31-year-old Hutchinson man again for counterfeiting less than six weeks after he was released from prison.

Hutchinson police took a report last Friday of a pizza delivery driver who received two fake $20 bills at an apartment on East 8th Avenue. Officers were unable to contact anyone there at the time. 

Detectives with the Repeat Offender Unit recognized the fake money as being produced by William Henry Scott Crider.

"The serial number on the two counterfeit twenty dollar bills were identical to the bills Crider had been convicted of producing in December of 2018," the Hutchinson Police Department said in a news release.

Crider was arrested at his apartment on Thursday for counterfeiting and theft by deception. Inside his residence, authorities found more counterfeit currency and "other items pertaining to additional criminal cases." 

The investigation is ongoing.

Crider was paroled on September 23 after serving a short prison stint for six counts identify theft, three counts of counterfeiting, three counts of forgery and two counts of theft by deception. He was arrested for those crimes on December 20 and was sentenced in April.
