Pair hits bottom of barrel with fake note

A slab of beer turned out to be the undoing of a pair of Kampot men passing counterfeit bills on Tuesday.

Police said the duo stopped into a Kampong district shop and purchased the suds with a crisp $100 note.

After they left, closer examination by the suspicious cashier revealed the truth and a call was made to police.

Thirty minutes later, they were in custody, though both said they were unaware the cash was fake. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
