Here's the Plot of Your Next Robert Ludlum Rip-Off

Los Angeles police hunting mystery man likened to Jason Bourne | Herald Sun: "LOS Angeles police are hunting a mystery man who fled as they raided his apartment, leaving behind piles of bogus cash, high-tech counterfeiting equipment and weapons.

The Los Angeles Times quoted police officers as saying that the 33-year-old suspect escaped from his high-rise apartment via a back window in a scene reminiscent of the Bourne Identity action films.

'He escaped like Jason Bourne,' Los Angeles Police Department deputy chief Mike Downing of the Counter-Terrorism Bureau, told the Times.

After being given the slip, detectives discovered stacks of counterfeit $US100 bills totaling $US15,000, sophisticated counterfeiting equipment, a camera tripod and a cache of weapons including an AK-47 assault rifle."
