SALISBURY, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Rowan County are accusing a man of using a fraudulent business account to buy a car from a Salisbury dealership and make a donation in honor of a murder victim.

Area media outlets report the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that 21-year-old Brandon Wright Acker of Lexington is charged with felony worthless check and obtaining property by false pretenses.
