Bums who bought baht with bogus bucks busted

Two men in Koh Kong were arrested on Saturday morning, after police got wind of their attempt to exchange counterfeit currency.

A money changer reported falling for the bogus banknotes to the cops, only realising their mistake after changing $2,000 to Thai baht.

Police were able to arrest one suspect at the scene, but the other evaded capture for a half-hour before he too was brought to heel, along with his Toyota Camry and accompanying fake number plates.
