One of the CCTV images issued by police in connection with fake £50 notes and fake Scottish £20 notes being used
Police are appealing for information after 30 reported incidents of fake notes being used in Wiltshire and have issued CCTV images of those they want to speak to in connection with the offences.
Since January 2014, there has been a series of offences committed across Wiltshire involving fake £50 notes and fake Scottish £20 notes being used.
These offences have taken place at retail outlets, pubs and hotels in Chippenham, Corsham, Trowbridge, Bradford On Avon, Devizes, Warminster, Westbury, Mere, Ludgershall, Amesbury and Salisbury.
It is believed that at least six male and female offenders are involved in these incidents and that they could be working as part of a wider team.
Wiltshire Police would ask all retail and business managers to be aware of these incidents and inform your staff to be extra vigilant.
If anyone should try and use a fake note, please dial 999 immediately to give officers the opportunity to apprehend the offenders at the scene.
If the offenders are no longer at the scene, then please call Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 where information can be left anonymously.
Please make note of the offender's physical description and also details of any vehicles that they are seen to be using.
Attached are a series of CCTV stills of men officers would like to speak to in connection with these incidents.
Anyone who has information on these men should contact Alaina Coles in the Crime Management Unit on 101 extension 728 341.
