August 11, 2017

An 81-year-old Maryland woman was arrested Aug. 9 when she tried to use counterfeit tickets at Funland in Rehoboth Beach.

Police said Marilyn Hammerman, a Rockville resident, tried to use counterfeit tickets at the bumper cars about 7 p.m. The veteran employee working the ride recognized the fake tickets from past incidents and told management, who then contacted Rehoboth Beach police.

Hammerman was found with about 20 fake tickets, police said. Funland ride tickets cost 35 cents each, and a 20-ticket strip goes for $7, according to Funland's website.

She was arrested and charged with theft under $1,500, a misdemeanor. She was released on $100 unsecured bail.
