Kimberley RCMP reported earlier this week that they know the identity of a man allegedly passing counterfeit bills in town and will be making an arrest as soon as they locate him.
Sgt. Chris Newel said that the local detachment has received several reports from local businesses of counterfeit bills being used for small purchases.
