Duo’s getaway thwarted by a traffic stoppage

Two bag snatchers regretted the escape route when it crossed the path of an official convoy and they were quickly caught and arrested on Wednesday.

As two ladies were leaving a market in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district, two men steered close, pulled away a bag and drove off.

The next road, however, was lined with cops blocking traffic for a motorcade, and the women’s calls for help were answered when officers cornered them.

The pair of poor-planning pilferers was taken to the station and the purse was returned to its owner.
