Local retailers advised to exercise vigilance as counterfeit money circulates...
Gardaí in Longford town are advising retailers to be vigilant after counterfeit money was produced to pay for a number of items at a local shop last Saturday.
On the day, two women entered the store and purchased goods to the value of €12.
Gardaí say that once the counterfeit money was accepted at the paypoint, the women received €38 in change and left the store.
It was some time later before staff at the outlet realised the error and they immediately contacted the Gardaí whose members are continuing to investigate the matter.
