Man arrested with high quality, fake €50 notes

FAKES: The eight €50 notes seized

GUARDIA Civil officers have arrested a man after he attempted to pay for his purchase in Lidl with a fake €50 note.

Police were called after the Ramla Belen shop’s security guard had detained a suspect who was allegedly attempting to pay with a fake note.

Once on the scene, the man was found with eight €50 notes which were reportedly of “high quality” and needed a falsification checking device in order to declare that it was in fact counterfeit.

The arrested man reportedly already has pending two legal claims.
