Two people from Alberta have been charged with making and possessing counterfeit money after a Yellowknife business reported to RCMP on Monday it had received counterfeit currency.

RCMP reviewed surveillance footage at the business, according to a news release, and later took a 23-year-old man and 22-year-old woman into custody after executing a search warrant at their motel where they seized what is believed to be counterfeit Canadian currency and "items associated with producing counterfeit currency," the news release states. RCMP would not say which local business or motel was involved.
