Suspected fake $50s stream in
COFFS HARBOUR police have now taken delivery of as many as 30 bank notes suspected of being fakes.
The counterfeit $50 notes continue to stream in following stories in the Advocate this week warning local residents and shopkeepers to be vigilant.
The notes will be forensically examined.
Police say the discovery of the fakes could be linked to raids in Sydney last week.
Three large commercial printing machines, more than 800 counterfeit $50 notes and cocaine worth $1.05 million were uncovered when police swooped on properties in Sydney’s eastern and south-western suburbs.
Police allege that someone from Sydney has come to Coffs Harbour and used fake $50 notes to buy a car.
