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.
Police said Donhue's arrest stemmed from an investigation that got under way last month into the passing of counterfeit money at numerous locations in Wicomico County. According to police, the suspects were using the money to obtain goods and services.
During this investigation a suspect was identified and arrested in Anne Arundel County for possession of counterfeit currency. Police said the investigation continued and evidence was recovered during the execution of a search warrant at the suspect's apartment in Salisbury. The U.S. Secret Service also provided assistance in this investigation.
On Oct. 24, members of the Maryland State Apprehension Team arrested Donohue on an outstanding arrest warrant. After being booked on the aforementioned charges, Donohue was turned over to the custody of Wicomico Central Booking.
All area businesses are requested to be on the lookout for any of the following counterfeit bills and contact police if found:
