Two people from Grande Prairie are facing more charges in regards to counterfeit currency.

RCMP in Lloydminister says 31-year-old Ross Dewar and 26-year-old Danielle Greer are facing a charge of the utterance of counterfeit currency allegedly at several businesses in the Lloydminster area.

This comes just a week after the two were accused of being involved in a larger scale counterfeit operation in Wembley.

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.

Both will appear in court on January 7th, 2020.
