Police are issuing a warning to shoppers in the Beccles area after an incident of counterfeit notes were passed to a shop. The incident took place at W H Smith in the Suffolk town recently – when two suspects entered the shop and tried to make a payment of over £1000 in Scottish notes. These were all found to be counterfeit. The suspects, two men, were described as having Irish accents and were about five foot eight inches to five foot nine inches tall – and had dark hair and wore heavy black coats. Police would remind all shoppers and businesses to be aware – and anyone who has knowledge of a similar incident taking place should contact Suffolk police by phoning 101.
