Fruit vendors serve up justice, side of chilli salt

Three hapless thieves were ripe for the picking after being spotted by a mob of fruit vendors in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Tuesday.

Police said that the men were trying to use bamboo sticks to break into a fruit shop, when the shop owner saw them and alerted her fellow vendors.

The crowd chased and surrounded the three men, preventing their escape, then turned them over to the police.

The owner said that she had been staying extra sharp after someone broke into her shop and stole money a few months ago.
