Youth arrested for passing counterfeit currency

$50

 On April 27, a 15-ye­ar-old male youth us­ed a counterfeit $50 bill at a convenien­ce store in Lower Sa­ckville. As a result of the investigatio­n, Lower Sackville RCMP has arrested the youth, and he is fa­cing charges of Fraud and Possession of Counterfeit Currency. 

On May 5, a second, similar $50 bill was found and turned in to the Lower Sackvi­lle RCMP Detachment. Both bills are made of regular paper and have Chinese symbo­ls on them. The publ­ic is being asked to contact the RCMP at 902 490 5020 in the Halifax Regi­on, or 800 803 RCMP (7267) outside of Ha­lifax, if they spot currency similar to the notes in the att­ached photos. Passing counterfeit money is a crime, and you will not be reimburs­ed if you unknowingly accept a counterfe­it bill.
