Heist plan proves to be no jewel in the crown

Armed with nothing but a piece of wood and soft drink, a would-be jewel thief saw his not-particularly-bright plan come to a quick end on Monday in Siem Reap town.

Police said the 23-year-old moseyed up to a market vendor’s stall during lunch, then quickly shattered the glass case and grabbed the bling before attempting to skedaddle.

Unfortunately for him, vendors and market security immediately cut off his escape routes, leaving him nowhere to go but provincial jail. Koh Santepheap
