Fiji Police have issued a warning urging people to be on the lookout after a fake $20 note was found on a woman in Lautoka this week.

Police said the note was discovered by a bank teller when the woman went to deposit money in the bank.

When questioned, the woman said she had found the money in a park in Lautoka.

Police are asking members of the public to be careful when handling cash as fake $10, $20 and 50 are now in circulation.

Meanwhile police have recorded an increase in motor vehicle theft.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said this year they recorded 33 cases of motor vehicle theft with the Southern division recording the highest.

Twenty three cases occurred in the Southern division, two each in the East and North and four cases in Totogo.
