A heist in haste makes for an open, shut case

A suspect's inability to play it cool foiled an attempted heist in Poipet on Tuesday.

Police said the suspect had gone into a money-exchange shop on the pretense of changing some cash.

While the shopkeeper was occupied, however, the woman snatched a stack of bills and exited the shop in quite a hurry.

Her suspicion aroused by the woman’s hasty gait, the shopkeeper checked her stash and noticed 1 million riel missing.

She raised the alarm and police grabbed the suspect and hauled her off in tears.
