Police have detained three individuals for selling forged dollars brought into Ukraine from Crimea, says a statement issued by the press service of the General Prosecutor’s Office.

The suspects were held up while trying to sell $10,000 on September 1, 2015. “The search of the suspects’ house has turned up $40,000 and a substance that looked like a narcotic”, reads the statement.

The suspects are expected to be remanded in police custody pending court action.
