Fifth region police have announced that they have made an arrest of a man dressed as a monk who was caught with 194 fake 100 dollar notes as well as seven 5000 Burmese kyat notes and four 10,000 Burmese kyat notes.

Police were first alerted to the man when reports began to come in about men selling foreign notes around town. They traced the man to a parked vehicle near the Chiang Mai University Gate where they made the arrest.

Working with the US Secret Service, the police have determined that all US dollar notes were fake.
