Police seize two in counterfeit yuan notes case

WANG Jian, a 37-year-old Henan migrant worker, is alleged to have worked in his rented apartment for almost a year since last March, making fake 100-yuan notes with his own computer, printing machine and scanner.

Now the arrests of Wang and Yang Shen, who is alleged to have sold fake notes, have been approved by local prosecutors.

Shanghai's economic crime team said yesterday that the case was the first local one in which suspects allegedly manufactured notes instead of simply selling them.

Investigators were tipped off last October by a neighbor of Wang, who rented a ground-floor apartment on Hongzhong Road, Minhang District, officers said.

Officers kept watch on Wang, which led them to Yang, the owner of a foot massage parlor on Hongqiao Road.

They seized Yang in his parlor and Wang in his apartment on March 18. Some 90,000 5-yuan, 20-yuan and 100-yuan fake notes and 400,000 unfinished notes were in the apartment, officials said. It took investigators a day to count them.
