Beach bandit’s robbery didn’t go so swimmingly

Cops in Sihanoukville pinched a thief on Sunday after he made off with a camera, phone and some cash left on a table by a family as they splashed in the ocean.

The 29-year-old reportedly sat nearby the family to appear to be with them before striking as they frolicked in the waves.

But when the waiter serving the family was alerted to the crime, he was able to point out the departing thief to nearby cops, who chased him down and arrested him on the beach.
