Beachside con artist doesn’t get very far

Life is presumably no longer a beach for a man arrested for stealing several items from a Sihanoukville tourist on Monday.

Police said that, last week, the victim left his belongings – a phone, camera and money – at a shop near the beach before going swimming.

A 30-year-old man pretending to be the tourist’s relative reportedly claimed the victim’s belongings. After coming back from his swim, the victim and the shop owner realised the belongings were gone.

The owner gave police the thief’s description and they tracked him down to a guesthouse on Monday. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
