Counterfeiting suspect accused of taking bogus bills public

SURREY – If you’re gonna print off some counterfeit cash, maybe a busy bus loop isn’t the best place to do it.

 

Transit Police arrested Gerald Doyle, 48, of Surrey last Thursday after receiving a report that a man was making counterfeit money at the Surrey Central bus loop in Whalley.

 

"Upon arrival, officers saw the suspect standing over a printer plugged into an external electrical outlet," Transit Police spokeswoman Anne Drennan said.

 

Drennan said there was a bag beside the man’s feet, and sticking out of the bag was an eight-inch-by-11-inch sheet of paper with bogus $20 bills printed on it.

 

She said police searched the bag and found more than $1,000 in counterfeit bills as well as knives.

 

Drennan noted that Doyle had been released from custody on the week prior on condition he not possess knives or counterfeiting gear.

 

Doyle is charged with one count of possessing counterfeit money, one count of making it and one count of possessing instruments to make bogus cash.
