Heist becomes loan; commerce churns on

Too many smokes might kill you, but they can also land you in hot water. A 42-year-old Daun Penh district cigarette vendor found that out on Tuesday when he ran out of money and figured an easy con would be the next best thing.

Waltzing up to a shop, he casually asked for 50 packs. When the vendor handed them over, he sped away without paying a riel. Alerted by the shrieking seller, police gave chase, quickly catching the hapless thief.

Touched by his pennilessness, the cops negotiated a contract between the two vendors – with the thief promising repayment as soon as he’s sold the supply. Kampuchea Thmey
