The Drumheller RCMP, work­ing with the Air­drie RCMP and Cal­gary Po­lice Ser­vice were able to make an ar­rest in a coun­ter­feit cur­rency case.

Michael Zero, 32 made a brief ap­pear­ance in pro­vin­cial court in Drumheller on Fri­day April 8, via closed cir­cuit tele­vi­sion. He was charged with pass­ing coun­ter­feit cur­rency.

It is al­leged that a sus­pect passed ap­prox­i­mately $160 of cur­rency at a lo­cal busi­ness on March 20.

This case is linked with cases in Cal­gary and Air­drie. Cor­po­ral Rod Guthrie says they were able to iden­tify the bills through se­rial num­ber.

“It came to­gether pretty quickly,” said Guthrie.

Zero, and Jenna McArthur, 31 were ac­cused in Air­drie of be­tween Jan­uary and March of 2016, pass­ing coun­ter­feit Amer­i­can cur­rency in lo­cal busi­nesses.

They are each fac­ing eight charges. Zero is sched­uled to ap­pear in court in Air­drie on April 21.
