April 26, 2021, 4:00 pm
On Monday, April 26, a male and a female entered multiple businesses in Whitewood, Moosomin and possibly other communities. They made purchases using counterfeit American money. At some locations small amounts of the counterfeit money was accepted. At one location in Moosomin the suspects attempted to purchase nearly $1,000 worth of merchandise but were declined. Over $1,000 of counterfeit money was observed by employees and is believed to still be in possession by the suspects.
The suspects have been identified by RCMP and are known to reside in Manitoba. At this time RCMP are trying to avoid more businesses and people from becoming victims.
Suspects advised most businesses that they were coming home from Minot and going to see their mother in Manitoba and that was why they had so much American money.
At this time it is not know what direction the suspect are travelling but it is believed they are travelling east as the suspects were in Whitewood prior to being in Moosomin around 1 pm on April 26.
