Prop Money Used at Downtown Business

Posted on Tuesday December 05, 2017

On December 4th, officers with the Patrol Services Division of the Sault Ste. Marie Police Service received a complaint of 3 counterfeit US $100 bills being used at a business in the downtown area.


When officers spoke to the complainant it was found that the bills were of poor quality and read “This note is not legal tender intended for picture and motion picture use” on the front of them.
