Police: South Glens Falls man submitted forged document

A South Glens Falls man is facing charges for allegedly submitting a forged court document.

State Police received a complaint in August that a forged document had been submitted to Moreau Town Court. The investigation determined that Robert G. Orton, 40, filed the paper with an intent to defraud, which resulted in court action concerning the eviction process, police said. Orton was in the process of being evicted.

Orton was charged with filing a false instrument and falsifying business records. He was arraigned in Moreau Town Court and released on his own recognizance.
