Getting away? That’s not their bag, baby

A sneaky couple in Preah Vihear province walked off with more than they bargained for during their daily grocery shopping on Tuesday.

After approaching an unsuspecting vendor for some vegetables, the man and his pregnant wife, aged 32 and 28, saw opportunity knock when the vendor set down her bag to hand over the produce.

The couple snatched the purse and made off on a moto, thinking they’d hit the jackpot, if only momentarily.

Hearing the vendor’s shouts for help, a crowd seized the thieves and returned the bag, along with the $1,250 in cash it contained. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
