Three people charged with counterfeiting made their first appearance in Revelstoke court last week.
Richard Bruce Thompson, Sarah Joy Beckley and Terry Peter Junior Ketlo all face a variety of charges relating to counterfeiting.
They made a brief appearance in court on Wednesday, Dec. 4, and their case was adjourned until January.
According to court documents obtained by the Times Review, all three are charged with possession of counterfeit money. Ketlo is charged with attempting to use counterfeit money at McDonald's, the Chevron Town Pantry, and Tim Hortons .
Thompson is charged with attempting to use counterfeit money at Traverse Night Club, the Frontier Restaurant, the Chevron Town Pantry, and McDonald's.
Ketlo and Thompson are also charged with making counterfeit money and owning a printer with the intent of using it to make counterfeit money.
The charges date to Sept. 12 and 13, 2013.
In September, police announced they had arrested four people and seized about $500 in counterfeit U.S. currency. It appears one person was not charged with any crimes. Police also seized firearms altered to fire automatically.
