Police detain woman who printed counterfeit banknotes

The police have detained a 42-year-old woman from Dečin who printed over 500 counterfeit banknotes in the past three years, causing damage to the tune of hundreds of thousands of crowns. A police spokeswoman said the banknotes were among the best counterfeits the police had ever come across and were so difficult to detect that many of them were still in circulation. The woman has owned up to the crime and may face a sentence of five to ten years in jail.
