Man arrested for trying to pawn fake jewellery

It was three rings to rule them all – or at least have the power to get one man arrested – in Stung Treng province on Monday when a suspect tried pawning some fake jewellery at a market in the province’s capital city.

Claiming to be a journalist, the 47-year-old sold off the bands to a vendor who later realised they were phoney before phoning up police.

The suspect confessed to his crime as soon as the cuffs were locked, and cops led him off to headquarters to face fraud charges.
