Three Tim Hortons duped by fake U.S. cash

Police are looking for at least three male suspects and a female



On Friday, November 27, 2015 police were contacted by three separate Tim Horton's located in the City of Barrie in regards to incidents where counterfeit US currency was used. 

Once reviewing the surveillance video at the three locations, police believe at least three black males are involved and one white female.

On Friday, November 6, 2015 at the Tim Horton's located inside the Georgian Mall located at 509 Bayfield Street, in the city of Barrie a male used a counterfeit US $100 bill to purchase a small amount of items, receiving legal Canadian money as change.

On Thursday, November 19, 2015 a different male entered the Tim Horton's located at 533 Bayfield Street, in the city of Barrie, using another counterfeit $100 bill to pay for several small items, collecting legal Canadian money as change.

On Sunday, November 22, 2015 two males who appeared to be the same two males from the previous incidents, entered the Tim Horton's located at 304 Blake Street, in the city of Barrie. 

This time a counterfeit $50 US bill was used. 

The males were seen leaving the store after receiving their items and their legal Canadian change.

One of the incidents showed the males leaving in a vehicle that was being driven by a white female, but little descriptors of the vehicle or female are available.

The Barrie Police Service is asking for assistance in identifying this male and anyone with information is asked to contact PC K Osborne of the Barrie Police Service at 705-725-7025 ext 2505 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, leave an anonymous tip online at
