Good day.


This is an awareness message brought to you by PCSO Jad from Horncastle Police NPT.


Between 18:00 and 18:30 hrs on 02/11/2018, an incident at Martin McColl store, in Coningsby, involved the surrender of forged £50 notes by a group of four males. The group initially purchased one scratch card. They then, went on to repeat the offence numerous times at the same store.


Could I remind all cashiers, if available, to use forgery detector measures.
