RCMP warn of counterfeit Canadian $50 bills

RCMP are warning business owners and the public of counterfeit Canadian $50 bills. 

Police have received eight reports of the counterfeit bills being passed to restaurants and convenience stores in Moncton and Dieppe since March 5th. 

Mounties say people should carefully examine bills with the serial number LGQ03229158, as some of the counterfeit cash may still be in circulation.

Police say it's an offence to recirculate a counterfeit bill. 

Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to contact the Codiac Regional RCMP or Crime Stoppers.
