BEIRUT: Lebanese authorities announced Friday they have seized $1 million in forged currency and apprehended the culprits behind the counterfeiting.

A statement from Lebanon’s State Security said three Lebanese identified only by their initials were arrested during a raid.

After a close watch of the suspects, the south Lebanon Directorate of State Security, in coordination with the Beirut and Mount Lebanon directorates, arrested the three men involved in counterfeiting and fraud during the raid, according to the statement.

The statement did not specify the time or place of the bust.

Authorities also confiscated $1 million in $100 bank notes, a stolen Nissan Sunny car with forged documents, a pistol along with its ammunition and a fake firearms license, the statement added.

It said the detainees confessed to the charges leveled against them, adding that they would be referred to the relevant judicial authority.
