Man accused of counterfeiting bail money

Man was arrested early Friday
MELVILLE, N.Y. The transaction compounded Cyheam Forney's legal problems and landed him in jail.

Police say they spotted the 31-year-old Forney making an illegal left turn in Melville on Thursday and discovered his license had been suspended.

Forney was arrested on a misdemeanor suspended license charge - until officers said he proffered the counterfeit currency as bail money. He was being held early Friday on a felony charge of possessing a forged instrument.

No telephone number could be found for Forney at the address police had for him, and they didn't know whether he had a lawyer.
