British couple arrested for passing counterfeit money in Puerto Santiago

The Guardia Civil from Guía de Isora on Tenerife have arrested a 41 year old man, and 40 year old woman, both British, on charges of using counterfeit money in Santiago del Teide.

Workers at a hotel in Puerto Santiago found a client drunk and passed out in a corridor with cuts to his fore-arm. It was thought he caused the injuries himself with a knife, and was taken to hospital. When he came round he acted violently with hospital staff, according to local media.

On a search of his hotel room the Guardia Civil found ten 50 € notes which were apparently fake, and arrested both the man and his partner.
