Fake computer-repair expert in real trouble

Trying to steal a broken laptop turned out to be a bad bargain for a Battambang man pretending to be a computer repairer at the town market on Tuesday.

Police say the 25-year-old fraudster simply waited for an unsuspecting customer to bring him a laptop needing fixing, then proceeded to feign going to the bathroom when he was in fact running away as fast as he could with the loot.

The victim, alerted to the ruse, shouted for help and police caught the man and sent him to court.
