Arrest following circulation of fake €50 notes
Killarney Gardai arrested a woman last weekend after a number of fake €50 notes were found to be in circulation in the town.
The arrest followed the presentation of the dud notes in two separate premises in Killarney on the Friday of the Bank Holiday weekend.
Gardaí also said that an attempt was made to pay with a fake €50 note in a shop in Killarney last Saturday.
“There were a number of dud €50s in circulation last weekend. We are asking retailers and shopkeepers to be vigilant,” Superintendent Flor Murphy told the Killarney Advertiser. “This kind of thing happens sporadically but on this occasion we were able to respond quickly and identify the person who we believe was responsible.”
The woman was released without charge and a file is being sent to the DPP on the matter.
