Keep an eye out for stolen money
STOLEN $5 notes are in circulation on the North Coast and police have asked residents to be on the lookout.
Investigators say a man, aged in his 40s, used the pristine notes to pay for goods at a number of Ballina businesses last Thursday.
The notes have been described as being in unused or mint condition, pale in colour with green serial numbers beginning with the letters AA.
Police from Richmond Local Area Command are conducting inquiries. Officers do not believe the notes are counterfeit but suspect they could have been stolen from a rare and valuable collection.
Investigations are ongoing and anyone who finds any of the notes or has information that might be of assistance to police is urged to contact Ballina Police Station via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 1800 333 000 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.
