The RCMP is recommending anyone who handles money to be vigilant when handling large bills after two suspects were caught on camera using counterfeit cash.
This comes after Selkirk RCMP received reports from local businesses that two individuals produced multiple suspicious $100 banknotes.
One of the suspects fled the scene after a cashier became suspicious and called the police. Luckily, this was after security cameras took an image of his face.
The counterfeit currency was seized and two of the three bills were found with the same serial number. The three bank notes also had a security feature that is found on a different denomination.
For anyone who thinks they have received counterfeit currency, contact your local RCMP.
