AMMAN — The Public Security Department's (PSD) Preventive Security unit on Sunday foiled two separate attempts to sell antiquities and counterfeit foreign currency in southern Amman and Liwa' Ruseifa.

A security source said that Preventive Security personnel were collecting information about two suspects who had been selling fake archaeological artefacts and dollars in a district in southern Amman.

Upon following up on the information, authorities arrested the pair of suspects and confiscated fake US currency totalling $3,400 as well as a number of artefacts, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

In a similar case, three suspects were apprehended in the Ruseifa District of the Zarqa governorate for possessing and trying to sell antiquities and gold coins.
