Cross-border caper ends badly for thief

A 20-year-old allegedly crossed provinces for a routine bag-snatching Friday. The suspect drove from Ratanakkiri province to Kampong Cham town, where he allegedly grabbed a bag off the shoulder of a 31-year-old woman, police said.

Patrolling cops soon caught wind of the crime, and a chase ensued. After 15 minutes, the man was caught with the woman’s bag, which contained a mobile phone and cash. After he was arrested, police said, he confessed to the crime, saying that he needed money after running out of his own. KOH SANTEPHEAP
