Increase in Euro counterfeit notes in City Centre

Police in Newry have received a number of reports of counterfeit Euro notes in circulation in over the last number of days. Sergeant James Bingham, Newry NPT, said, “Local business people, staff and members of the public should be vigilant and take a few minutes to check notes carefully before accepting them. Any suspicious incident should be reported to police.”

He continued, “The public should also be aware that 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.”

Anyone who has any information regarding the production or distribution of counterfeit banknotes, can contact police in Newry on 0845 600 8000 or alternatively contact the ‘Crimestoppers’ charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
