A southern Alberta man who spent counterfeit money at a Raymond business two years ago, then returned to try it
again a month later, will spend a number of weekends in jail.

Timothy James Clements was sentenced to 90 days in jail, but he will serve his sentence between 7 p.m. Friday and 4 p.m. Sunday, a judge allowed June 21 in Lethbridge court of justice.

Clements pleaded guilty to two charges of using counterfeit money in relation to the Raymond offences, the first of which occurred on March 15, 2022 when he used a fake $50-bill to purchase food at the Dairy Queen. The counterfeit bill was noticed by the bank the following day, and Clements was identified after police reviewed the restaurant’s video footage.
Barely a month later, on April 20, Clements returned to Dairy Queen and tried to purchase food with a fake $100-bill.
