Police in Newry have arrested two males following a number of incidents in Newry, Portadown, Armagh, Fermanagh and Tyrone where counterfeit currency was passed.

A 17 year old male and 20 year old male were arrested in connection with these incidents and previous incidents in Portadown, Armagh, Fermanagh and Tyrone. They are currently assisting police with their enquiries.

Police are reminding all business owners and staff to be vigilant of counterfeit notes. Police would advise local business people, staff and members of the public to take a few minutes to check notes carefully before accepting them and always report any suspicious incidents to police.

It is a criminal offence to try to pass or keep a banknote that you either know or suspect to be counterfeit. If you inadvertently receive a note that you believe to be counterfeit, you should take it to the nearest police station.
