Police are appealing to the public for their help in identifying a man they are keen to speak to in relation to an incident of counterfeit currency.

Images from Tesco supermarket in Emscote Road, Warwick, captured this image of the man they want to question.

He was one of two unknown men who entered the store and attempted to use counterfeit Scottish bank notes.

One of the men was successful and purchased a 10 pack of Lambert and Butler cigarettes.

Both men then left in an unknown direction after being challenged on the authenticity of the bank notes.

The first man is described as white, in his late 20s and of a slim build. He was wearing a black baseball cap, a dark coloured camouflaged jacket and beige coloured ‘skinny’ fit trousers.

The second man is described as white, in his late 30’s to early 40’s, bald and wearing dark clothing.

CCTV from the store has been obtained and police are keen to identify the man pictured.

A police spokesman said: “If this is you, or you recognise the man, please contact us on 101, quoting incident 330 of 5th December.”

Alternatively, information can be passed on anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers via their website at or by calling 0800 555 111.
