A spate of fraudulent purchases involving people using fake £50 notes in London Colney has led police to appeal for witnesses.
The first fraud took place on March 6, when a man bought something of low cost from the Marks and Spencer store in Colney Fields shopping centre using a fake £50 note.
He then took his change and left the store.
The second fraud occured on 5.50pm on March 13 in the Sainsbury’s store at the same retail centre.
A man used a fake £50 note to buy items but was stopped by security staff.
Another incident took place later on the same day, when a man entered the Marks and Spencer store and attempted to buy something with a fake £50 but was refused service by staff.
Herts Police have released a CCTV image of a man they are seeking in connection with the fake notes.
Anyone who recognises him should contact PC Ben Hardwick via Herts Police’s non-emergency number 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
