SALISBURY, Md. - A Salisbury man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery attempt. Salisbury Police says that around 7:00 PM on Tuesday, 39-year-old Shane Oneil Banks walked into the Express Mart on N. Salisbury Boulevard with his hand in his jacket pocket.

During the arrest, Police say they found a smoking device, with suspected cocaine inside. Banks was charged with attempted armed robbery, attempted robbery, possession of cocaine, and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was released to the custody of central booking.
