Counterfeit $50s circulating on West Shore

Retailers urged to be on the lookout for bills with serial number AHT9461314

A number of fake $50 bills have been used recently to make purchases at local retailers.

The bills, all with the serial number AHT9461314 have been passed at Fairway Market in Langford, Wendy’s Restaurant in Colwood, Western Foods in Langford, Costco and Western Foods in Sooke over a period of three days this week.

The West Shore RCMP Financial Crime investigator is assisting the RCMP with their investigation and they are asking for the public’s assistance.

“We believe there is a strong possibility that other businesses were affected by these counterfeit bills and encourage them to come forwards and report it to their local police agency,” says West Shore RCMP spokesperson Alex Berube.

Anyone with information is asked, as always to contact the detachment at 250-474-2264 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).
