Hampshire Police are investigating after three businesses on Stockbridge High Street were targeted by two men using fake £50 notes to purchase low value items between 3:15pm and 4:00pm yesterday (Wednesday 27th June).

Both men are both described as:

  • white in their 20
  • wearing blue/grey shorts, t.shirts, baseball caps and trainers.

It is believed that they left the High Street in a white VW Golf.
