SALISBURY, Md.- Salisbury police have announced the arrest of a suspect accused of passing phony money at several businesses around Wicomico County.

Collin Joseph Donohue, 21, of Salisbury, is charged with manufacture of counterfeit currency, possession/issue of forged currency and theft less than $100.
