Counterfeit Money and Shoplifting Incidents in Saugeen Shores

Saugeen Shores | by Travis Jackson  

Police are seeking the public's help to solve these cases.

A fake $100 bill was discovered earlier this month after an employee at the Port Elgin Walmart location discovered it when depositing money into the bank.

Police say that the unknown person left the store with stolen property. 

Incidents of counterfeit bills have dropped drastically due to enhanced security features on the notes. 

The Saugeen Shores Police encourage people to be vigilant as the potential to be duped is always present.

There has not been any further reports of counterfeit bills since this occurrence.

There have also been a few counts of theft. 

On October 12th, police say a woman was captured on video surveillance in a local business concealing a pair of winter boots and leaving the store making no attempt to pay.

Investigating officers reviewed the video footage and positively a 26 year old Port Elgin woman as the culprit. She was located a short time later and arrested for theft and released on a promise to appear in court.

On Thursday (October 18th), the same 26 year old women was apprehended by Saugeen Shores Police on a warrant of arrest for failing to appear in court, stemming from two shoplifting incidents in July and August of this year. 

In these two occurrences the woman was observed on video surveillance stealing food from a Port Elgin business.
