Spurious cash used in shady shopping spree

A (fake) paper trail led police straight to a 53-year-old man who was allegedly caught using counterfeit cash in Takeo province.

Police say that on Chinese New Year the suspect bought 192 fake $5 bills meant to be burned as offerings – at the market before spending them.

His luck ran out when a food vendor recognised the faux fiver and alerted authorities.

District police arrested the man for fraud, confiscated his moto and remaining counterfeit cash, and sent him to provincial court.
