The shop owner reported the fake cash to police, prompting investigations in the male's activity and ultimately leading to his arrest.

Swan Hill Police Inspector Haydn Downes says counterfeit money can circulate if owners aren't wary.

"A lot of the differences you pick up by the feel of them, especially with the new notes," Insp. Downes said.

"Unfortunately they can get past if you're very busy in a shop, and they don't have time to have a look."

"Our troops on the ground did a great job with their investigations."
