Dial G for gullible: Con costs trusting shopkeep

Two so-called friends of a Kratie town phone-shop owner took advantage of their relationship to defraud the man out of some of his wares on Sunday.

Police said the two suspects walked into the shop and told the owner that they had just come from visiting his son, who was having an emergency.

Concerned, the man rushed out, asking the suspects to look after the shop. Instead, the two allegedly stuffed their pockets with 10 phones, fled and are still at large. KOH SANTEPHEAP
