HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A suspect wanted by two law enforcement agencies for reportedly passing counterfeit bills to Pine Belt businesses is now behind bars.

Darius Sumrall, 26, was arrested by the Hattiesburg Police Department on Thursday. Officers caught up with Sumrall at WestChester’s Apartments.

Police in Hattiesburg and Sandersville have been on the lookout for Sumrall since the beginning of April.

Investigator Curtis Pitts, with the Sandersville Police Department, said Sumrall is accused of passing fake $100 bills to area businesses. Pitts said some of those transactions involved more than $1,000 in counterfeit bills.

Hattiesburg police spokesman Ryan Moore said Sumrall may have also passed fake bills at businesses in the Hub City, including Mugshots and Planet Fitness.

According to Pitts, Sumrall is in the custody of U.S. Marshals until they can move him to the Jones County Jail. Sumrall will face one count of passing counterfeit money in Sandersville, Pitts said.

Officials said this investigation is ongoing and more charges are possible.
