Italian Police, according to Reuters, seized five printing presses and some 50 million Euros in counterfeit bills, primarily in the 50-euro domination, late last week.

The news agency continued to report the unfinished fake banknotes were found inside the warehouse of a sewer company, including behind wood paneling and in drawers built under the pavement, at a location south of Naples. Five men had been ordered by the courts to be arrested in connection with the counterfeiting.
