The Manchester police have confirmed that two men were today charged for possession of and manufacturing counterfeit notes.
The counterfeit notes were seized on Monday.
The men have been identified as Paul Graham, 60, and his 30-year-old nephew, Tyrone Graham.
According to police reports, members of the Proactive Investigation team, acting on information, went to their home in Union district, Hatfield, Manchester, about 8:00 pm, and found the men making the fake money.
The total sum seized, including some partially made notes, was J$72,000.
Additionally, a printer, sheets of parchment paper, ink cartridges, a stencil knife, and a ruler that were used in the process, were seized by the police.
The police say that the younger Graham was released from jail late last year after serving six months for a similar offence.
The two men are suspected to be part of a larger network that is manufacturing counterfeit notes in the parish.
