Gardai in Limerick have warned that counterfeit notes are doing the rounds again
GARDAI in Limerick have warned that counterfeit notes are doing the rounds again.
A spokesperson said that an off licence in County Limerick took in a €50 note from a young male.
“He purchased goods to the value of €11 and the change was handed out before the staff member checked the note and found it to be a dud note. She did attempt to stop the male from leaving but he ran off.
“Every business should at least have the marker pen to establish whether it is a legitimate note or not before change is handed over to the customer,” they added.
Gardai are also highlighting a number of burglaries in the last week.
One occurred in an office building in the city centre where the main doors are opened by a card swipe that employees have.
“In this case a male followed a worker into the building and stole a handbag before he got away,” said gardai, who warned employees to ensure that the door closes behind them so nobody can follow them in.
