WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Police arrested a trio accused of passing counterfeit money in Luzerne County.

Lahmel Cephas of Wilkes-Barre and Armani Allen and Dvine Allen, both from Brooklyn, New York, are charged after investigators say they went on a counterfeit spree in New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
