INSTANT reaction by the members of the Thabong Police Crime Prevention Unit led to the discovery of counterfeit money valued at R900 000 and the arrest of three women in Welkom’s township of Thabong on Tuesday, 4 August.

The members busted the three women, aged between 25 and 35, discovering fake money during a routine patrol in Thabong.

WO Malebo Khosana, Thabong police spokesperson, said there had been an attempt to dispose of the counterfeit money by the fourth suspect, a male, after on-duty members had caught up with a red Vokswagen Golf 3 whose driver had tried to flee after having noticed the police patrolling in Oppenheimer Park, Thabong.

Khosana said the driver had jumped from the vehicle.

He was carrying a bag and fled on foot, leaving the three women in the car.

“The fleeing man dropped the bag as one of the police members closed in on him.

“The officer who was chasing the male suspect took the bag containing counterfeit money.”

Khosana said a case of possession of counterfeit money under Act 16 of 1995 Section 2, was being investigated and added that the fourth suspect, the man, was still on the run
