Surrey Mounties say they’ve dismantled a counterfeit currency ring in Newton, with four suspects being charged.

“During this investigation, police have seized a further $12,000 in counterfeit U.S. currency, $120 in counterfeit Canadian currency, equipment that has been used to produce counterfeit currency, as well as knives and replica firearms,” Constable Richard Wright said.
