Fake notes exchanged for £700 in coins

Thieves stole £700 in coins from a change machine after feeding counterfeit notes in.

Police said two men were seen feeding bank notes into the machine, which is near game machines at the Annandale Water Services at Johnstonebridge on the M74. It was discovered the notes were fake but £700 in £1 coins had been given out on Sunday.

One man was said to be of large build and in his 30s or 40s with receding dark hair. He was wearing a grey hooded top, striped scarf, brown trousers and a dark blue jacket.

His accomplice was of slim build, and wore black trousers, a black Puffa style body warmer, dark shoes and a black and white woolly hat.

Police are appealing for anyone with information to call 101.
