Marcus T Hamilton
19 year old Madison man




On Wednesday June 27, 2018 officers were dispatched to State Street Brats after a 19 year old Madison man tried to use a fake fifty dollar bill to purchase a one dollar burger. Savvy staff members recognized the bill as fraudulent. They were able to provide police with a description of the man who had departed prior to police arrival.  Police soon spotted Marcus T Hamilton in the area.  As they approached him, Hamilton fled on foot with officers in pursuit.  The suspect was taken into custody after a short foot chase.
Subsequent to his arrest, Hamilton was found to possess $250 more in fraudulent currency, a quantity of what was believed to be psilocybin mushrooms and a small amount of marijuana.
Hamilton was conveyed to the Dane County jail.  He is tentatively charged with felony forgery, misdemeanor possession of a hallucinogenic drug, misdemeanor resisting an officer and a forfeiture for casual possession of marijuana.
