On Monday, August 8, 2022, Fort St James RCMP were called to a local business after counterfeit currency was discovered. Police noticed that a pattern of transactions had occurred over a several day period by individuals residing at the same residence.

Through investigation, including review of surveillance video, police were able to positively identify the individuals believed to have passed the phony money.

Based on evidence obtained, police were able to obtain a search warrant for a residence in the community and on Thursday, August 11, 2022, police executed the warrant. During this time, a large amount of counterfeit Canadian currency was seized.

We would like to remind everyone to continue to be diligent when accepting cash as payment as there could be more currency circulating through town. If you come across suspected counterfeit money, you are asked to call the police said Cpl James Potyok, Fort ST James RCMP
