TWO men have been released on police bail after being questioned on suspicion of circulating counterfeit coins.
The suspects, aged 35 and 36 and from Birmingham, were arrested after police swooped on a Swadlincote market stall following an allegation that a customer had been handed fake £1 coins.
“We were called on Friday afternoon regarding a suspicion that counterfeit £1 coins had been passed over the market that was being held on that day,” confirmed Derby South section commander, Inspector Paul Cannon, who is based at Swadlincote’s Civic Way station.

“They have been questioned under the Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 1981 and have been bailed to come back and speak to us at a later date and be re-interviewed while we carry on with our inquiries.”
