Arrested for paying with false €200 at feria

LOS BARRIOS A couple was arrested last Sunday for using false €200 notes to pay for things at the feria. The couple, of about 50 years old, allege that they did so unaware that the notes were false. The police arrested the couple just before midnight, after being told of a false note by the manager of one of the casetas (marquees). They traced another two notes at different places, and obtained descriptions of the couple, who were found at yet another marquee. On them, the police found another false €200 note, and €450 in other legal tender. They allegedly paid for small things, such as a couple of drinks, with the false notes, and obtained change in 'proper' money. (Coming soon: Can you identify false euros?)
