Complexion-conscious crooks caught by cops

Two women posing as shoppers were arrested on Saturday for allegedly swiping a shop owner’s bag full of phone cards and cash.

According to police, the women, aged 31 and 32, had asked a shop owner in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district to fetch them some whitening lotion.

But when the shopkeeper went to get it, the women took off with his bag, which had more than 150 phone cards and cash inside.

The shopkeeper called the cops who tracked down the suspects and sent them to the local police station. An unnamed man is wanted but has gone into hiding.
