Grande Prairie RCMP has charged two people following a lengthy investigation into occurrences involving counterfeit currency.
Police say on the evening of December 5th, they located two people outside of a residence in Wembley, and after they were taken into custody, authorities allegedly found $2,600 in counterfeit US money and $50 in counterfeit Canadian currency.
A search of the residence also allegedly turned up an additional $1,300 in fake US currency along with printers, paper cutters and loose sheets of paper.
Authorities say a truck, which had previously been reported stolen, was also recovered as part of the investigation, and police say during a search of the vehicle they seized numerous sheets of uncut counterfeit US currency, printer ink cartridges, as well as several stolen Alberta license plates.
Subsequently, 31-year-old Kevin Dewar and 26-year-old Danielle Green, both of Grande Prairie, have been charged with among other things, making counterfeit money and possession of counterfeit money.
The two remain in custody and will next appear in court on December 9th.
