Some of the stained notes

POLICE have dismantled an organisation that changed stained stolen banknotes from robberies in France.

The gang attempted to change €120,000 – acquired from several bank and money transport robberies – that were stained in different colours due to anti-theft systems.

The assailants would claim the money had been stained with vehicle coolant before requesting clean banknotes from branches across the country.
