OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) — Ocean City police have arrested two people they say used counterfeit currency to buy items in resort businesses.

Police say a store employee approached an officer on the Boardwalk on Saturday and said two people had tried to pass a possibly counterfeit $100 bill.

After an investigation led to the recovery of two counterfeit $100 bills, 19-year-old Joel Ray Sites Jones of St. Thomas, Pa., and a 17-year-old girl were arrested and charged with possession of counterfeit currency and theft of less than $1,000.
