Kiosk owner printed forged bus tickets

A kiosk owner was arrested in Kavala, northern Greece, after she was caught producing and selling forged bus tickets, police said yesterday. The woman, who was not identified, was using a printer that produced high resolution copies. However, the forged items still had inferior quality paper and colors that differed from the real items, according to authorities. Bus company officials said that the suspect is not believed to have been selling the tickets for long but did not mention the exact period of time the operation may have been running. Police were led to the kiosk after an inspector came across a university student who had purchased one of the forged tickets. A search of the woman’s home also uncovered cutting equipment and some ticket books.
