OCEAN CITY, Md. - An arrest in Fruitland lead Ocean City Police to a suspect in their own counterfeit currency case. Ocean City Police say earlier in the month they starting investigating multiple reports of counterfeit money at local businesses.

During that investigation, OCPD learned that other authorities in Worcester County, along with Wicomico County and Sussex County, in Delaware, were also looking into similar incidents. OCPD says they identified two suspects in connection with their case.

On April 5th, Fruitland Police took one of those suspects, 25-year-old Derrick Richardson of Parsonsburg, along with a female accomplice, into custody after the two allegedly tried to use fake money at a local business.
