Five suspects were detained, in connection with uttering false bank notes in the Matura District.

On Thursday 18th April, 2024, two business proprietors made separate reports at the Matura Police Station, each indicating that they received a fraudulent $100 dollar bill, during a transaction earlier that afternoon around 3 pm. Based on the information received, around 7:15 pm officers who were on a road check duty in the vicinity of the Matura Police Station, stopped a white Nissan Almera vehicle with five occupants.

When the officers searched the vehicle, they found a hat which contained a quantity of cash, along with twenty fraudulent $100 bills. The officers subsequently detained five suspects, three men and two women aged between 22 and 27 years.

This road check was conducted by Ag/Sgt Hazel, Cpl Abraham, PC Rodney, PC Rajkumar and PC Ragoonath.
