Local motel clerk spots fake money

Middleton: Lynn man accused of making counterfeit bills


Papagikas told officers he had “no idea” where all that money came from, according to the Middleton police report.

Meanwhile, they also conducted a search of the bags and the car after getting a warrant. In one bag they found a Kodak printer and in the other, a Gateway laptop computer and sheets of paper with $20 bills printed on them.

They did not find an ATM receipt.

During his arraignment yesterday in Salem District Court, his privately hired attorney, Neil Hourihan, urged a judge to delay the proceedings because of concerns over his client’s emotional state. Judge Robert Brennan agreed to wait until Papagikas is evaluated by a court psychologist, something that won’t take place until Tuesday.

Until then, he’ll remain in custody at Middleton Jail, held without bail, after prosecutor Patrick Collins filed motions to have his bail revoked in his other pending cases.
