Johannesburg - Three men have been arrested for possession of suspected counterfeit bank notes worth an estimated R1m in Tsakane on the East Rand, Gauteng police said on Wednesday.
Police conducting a stop-and-search operation on Tuesday afternoon saw the men alighting from a minibus taxi, Lieutenant Colonel Katlego Mogale said.
"While searching the trio's luggage, the officers found R100 notes packed inside two small boxes."
The men, in their 50s, would face charges of possession of suspected counterfeit banknotes in the Brakpan Magistrate's Court soon.
