Spruce Grove RCMP are warning businesses of fake money found in the area.
On January 15, 2019, Spruce Grove RCMP were alerted to counterfeit Canadian currency in circulation from local businesses.
The currency in question was missing several security features and was printed on regular paper instead of the new polymer material.
In addition to the counterfeit currency, one legitimate bill was discovered to have been altered.
RCMP are advising businesses to be cautious when accepting any amounts of cash and to familiarize themselves with Canadian currency security features by reading the Bank of Canada website.
If you have any information regarding counterfeit bills, please call RCMP or Crimestoppers.
