Paper trail foils trio of counterfeit playboys

Fake dollars bought some real trouble for a trio of men in Kratie town on Friday. Police said the threesome hit up a phone store where they used counterfeit money to purchase four phones.

The shopkeep put together the bills’ phony provenance after they’d left, but luckily for him, they were still in the market on their spending spree, making them easy pickings for police.

Even luckier, they had still had the invoice he’d issued them. Koh Santepheap
