Bay of Plenty Police says there is a rise in the use of counterfeit money in the Bay of Plenty region.
For the last few weeks Police have responded to a number of calls where counterfeit bank notes were presented at some small businesses.
A 38-year-old local man was arrested after he had allegedly paid for goods using the fake cash. He was in possession of a large amount of notes.
Reports indicate that the illegitimate notes are being used across the North Island ranging from Hamilton to Wellington.
Anyone with information about the manufacture or distribution of counterfeit banknotes is asked to contact Police on 105.
Information can also be provided anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
