also seized Rp100,000 worth of evidence in the form of counterfeit money worth Rp1.5 million.

pieces of counterfeit money of Rp.100 thousand. To the police, Tukiran claimed to have
circulated fake money three times, namely in Kalikebo, Srago and Jimbung. This was done
because of the urgent need to pay installments on motorcycle loans.
