Kimberley RCMP identified the use of counterfeit money on Monday, leading them to a suspect that produced the fake cash.
Receiving several reports from the public, Kimberley RCMP followed up with their investigation into the matter.
“Businesses reported a male subject used or attempted to use a $100 bill for small purchases,” said RCMP. “The bills were checked and found to be counterfeit.”
Kimberley RCMP said that in one instance, a clerk rejected one of the bills when the suspect produced a $50 bill, which was turned out be counterfeit money.
“The counterfeit bills are fairly easy to distinguish from legitimate ones, the bills seized by police all have a torn corner. They are also a thick paper as opposed to the more plastic feel.”
Police said they have identified a suspect in relation to the case and will be making an arrest, one the man is located.
