Ashcroft RCMP are warning businesses in the Ashcroft and Cache Creek area to be aware of a suspect passing counterfeit Canadian $50 and $100 bills in those two communities.
The detachment has received several calls about counterfeit money being used. One suspect has been identified: a Caucasian female with black hair. The suspect is between 5’ 4” and 5’ 7” in height, has a slender build, and is known in the Ashcroft/Cache Creek area.
Employers and employees at local businesses are urged to check the money they are receiving from customers. If a business has received what is believed to be counterfeit money, please keep the currency and call the Ashcroft RCMP non-emergency line at (250) 453-2216.
If you believe that the suspect is in your business, do not confront them. Instead, call 9-1-1 immediately.
