Boro Park Shomrim Bust Counterfeit Money Gang

Four people have just been taken into custody after using counterfeit money in Boro Park stores.

Four Israeli men have been going into many stores on 13th and 16th Avenues in the past few days using counterfeit $100 bills. The men would enter a store and purchase an item for $10, give the cashier a $100 counterfeit bill, and receive $90 in real currency.

Boro Park Shomrim were contacted with the descriptions of the suspects, and members were on high alert.

On Friday afternoon, the 4 suspects were caught red-handed, and apprehended by Shomrim units on 16th Avenue and 50th Street - with thousands of phony dollars in their possession. Officers from the 66th Pct responded to the scene and arrested the suspects.

They are currently in the 66th Pct awaiting the arrival of US Secret Service Agents.
Highly credible sources confirm that the men are part of a larger network involving counterfeit money.
