Sentences handed down in counterfeit money operation

Sentences have been laid against two Grande Prairie men involved in a fraud investigation. In August, RCMP arrested four people believed to be part of the problem of fake U.S. cash floating around Grande Prairie.

On the 17th of that month, RCMP spotted a vehicle parked outside a motel that matched the description of one used in reports of phony bills being used. A search of a hotel room turned up roughly $8,500 in bogus U.S. cash.

32 year old Michael James Boyes, 20 year old David Lee Henderson and 19 year old Montana Lee Munroe were arrested and were facing several charges related to the use and making of counterfeit currency. Further investigation led to the arrest of 29 year old Kyle Jared Johnson of Edmonton on counterfeit and laundering charges, along with possession of a controlled substance and obstructing a peace officer.

Boyes plead guilty to charges of using and putting counterfeit money into circulation and served 53 days. Henderson plead guilty to charges of possession of a substance, possession of counterfeit money and proceeds of crime. He received a 270 day jail sentence with 53 days credit for time served.
