GO TO JAIL
Lads nicked paying Spain bar bill with MONOPOLY money
TWO teenagers have been arrested in Spain for trying to pay for drinks at a bar with Monopoly money. The pair now face
the threat of being sent straight to jail after being charged with fraud.
The pals – who have not been named – were boozing in a popular pub in Magaluf, Majorca, when they found the board game notes on the floor.
The notes were reportedly colour photocopies with an English inscription, making it clear they were not legal currency on the island, which uses the euro.
It is believed the bills were part of a promotion by the pub.
The teenagers allegedly tried to pay for their drinks using the notes, and a waitress called over the bar’s manager.
Police were then summoned and officers found a huge number of banknotes on the pair, who are Irish, before they were arrested.
They were held overnight before being bailed by a judge.
A spokeswoman for Ireland’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it had not been contacted about the case.
She added: “The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade stands ready to provide consular assistance if requested.”
