Two people were arrested after they were found in possession of Ksh.700, 000 fake currency in Embu North Sub-County.
Assistant County Commissioner 1 Manyatta Division Fredrick Kimani confirmed the arrest and identified the two as Josephine Mukami Mugo, 25 , and Mugo Rware.
They are in custody at Manyatta Police Station.
Mr. Kimani said police also discovered a suspicious liquid which they believe the suspects were using to process the currency.
Police are still searching for machine which they were reportedly using to make the fake notes.
The administrator said investigations revealed that the currency was made in Embu and used in various towns.
Unsuspecting residents apparently fell prey to the two suspects and others who are yet to be found.
Kimani said police are in pursuit of the others as Rware and his daughter to assist with investigations.
The two will be arraigned later this week.
