A man and woman arrested in Lethbridge match the descriptions of counterfeiting suspects in Cranbrook, RCMP said.

Three businesses in Cranbrook were victims of fraud artists on December 1. The two suspects passed counterfeit $50 and $100 bills here.

The pair  arrested in Lethbridge by the Lethbridge Police Service were in possession of $10,000 in counterfeit U.S. money. The RCMP said that some of the bills had serial numbers JD41622990A on the $50 bill, and KB48054862JB2 on the $100 denomination.

If any other businesses had counterfeit bills passed, they are asked to call the Cranbrook RCMP to report the incident for further investigation.

The suspects are currently being held in custody in Lethbridge pending a bail hearing. They face multiple charges in B.C., Alberta and Saskatchewan.
