Russian couple arrested on charges of passing fake British banknotes


Mr Evgeny Viktorov, a 28-year old Russian male, and his Russian girlfriend, were arrested inside the Kasikorn bank, located at the Outlet Mall on Thepprasit Road in Jomtien, on Wednesday afternoon after allegedly trying to exchange fake British banknotes for Thai baht. Police were called by bank staff after the pair had attempted to exchange a total of 80 British banknotes, with a value of about 80,000 baht. Officers took the pair back to their rented house in Soi Ngern Plub Wan where police uncovered a further stash of British banknotes, all of which turned out to be fake and increased the overall value to around one million baht. Mr Viktorov allegedly told police his girlfriend had found the money hidden away in the house about a week ago. The pair had been renting the premises for nearly a month. They helpfully suggested the previous occupants of the house must have been British and may simply have forgotten to take the fake banknotes with them when they moved on, leaving Mr Viktorov and his girlfriend to believe they had struck something of a jackpot. Police are not convinced by this explanation and intend to undertake further investigations before determining what course of action they will pursue. At present the pair are occupying a jail cell, where it’s just possible the female is hoping to miraculously uncover a gold seam.
