The Trail RCMP received two separate reports of a man using counterfeit money in early November and by the end of the month an arrest was made.

Police say the 28-year old man has a February court date

Sergeant Mike Wicentowich says it isn't a common occurrence.

He says typically it doesn't happen very often in the area, and security features are getting quite sophisticated so it's hard to make counterfeit money and in this case it was quite crude.

Wicentowich adds a number of counterfeit 50 dollar bills may still be circulating.
