A covetous crook decided to increase his profit margin from reselling pieces of wood by paying for them with counterfeit notes.
The 22-year-old bought $250 of counterfeit cash comprising $5 and $10 notes for $2 at a market in Kratie on Friday and used them to purchase the forestry goods.
He then sold them to an interested buyer, pocketing a $50 profit. The wood seller later learned of the fraudster’s despicable act and filed a complaint. He was promptly arrested and sent to provincial court.
