Three arrested after counterfeit cash alert

North Wales Police

Three people wanted for alleged counterfeit cash offences in south Gwynedd have been arrested.

Two men and a woman were questioned after they were caught trying to pay for low value goods using conterfeit £50 Bank of Ireland notes in Penrhyndeduraeth, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Porthmadog.

One of the men remains in police custody because he was wanted elsewhere in the UK – the two other suspects have been released on conditional bail.

The gang were said to be travelling through North Wales in a blue Ford Transit van and spoke with Irish accents.

Gwynedd South district Inspector Matt Geddes said the arrests were a result of tip-offs from the public: ”Your vigilance and willingness to share information this weekend has resulted in 2 males and a female being arrested for counterfeit currency offences.”

”These arrests have come from community information following our social media appeals – an excellent example of the police and community working together. Please keep the information coming.”
