Police Impound Fake Currency

12 April 2012, 07:31 Tony Ndungu Karomo

Police in Meru have impounded 1.8 million shilling fake currency in a residential house at Kooje Estate within Meru Town.
The counterfeit money which was in 1000 Kenyan denomination was found stacked in a newspaper after police ransacked the house, the Division District Officer (DO) Mr. Dickson Kwanusu said.

Kwanusu said that the operation was not meant for its cause but a tip off that the occupant had a gun and instead landed on the fake notes together with a machine allegedly used to mint the money and a mutilated Ethiopian passport.

The suspect is said to have fled after the landlord asked him to open the house for inspection. The DO urged residents to carefully verify the 1000 shilling notes in their money transactions warning that the fake denomination might be in circulation within the area.

Mr. Kwanusu also called on residents to provide any information that would lead to the arrest of the person connected to the fake currency so that necessary legal measures may be taken.
