Counterfeit bills circulated in Hope

A 34-year-old Hope man has been charged with possession and using counterfeit money

A 34-year-old Hope man has been charged with possession and using counterfeit money.

Cory Burger was arrested on May 1 after Hope RCMP was notified of a man passing off counterfeit currency at the Flying J travel plaza on Flood-Hope Road.

Police later executed a search warrant at his home on Jason Road, which resulted in the seizure of computers, 24 counterfeit US$10 bills with the serial number of IE70080723A, and evidence relating to the production of counterfeit currency.

“I would like to thank the business community for their assistance and cooperation into this investigation,” said Cpl. Darren Rennie. “The phony US$10 bills were passed throughout businesses in Hope and the Fraser Valley.”

The police investigation is still underway, however, Burger was scheduled to appear in Chilliwack provincial court on Tuesday.

According to court records, he is also currently charged with using a forged document and breach of bail conditions in Chilliwack.
