Ill-gotten gains don’t last long for thief

A slick motodop thought he struck gold on Thursday, but quickly found himself behind bars.

While getting his motorbike filled with gasoline in Kampong Speu, the 28-year-old thief snuck inside the seller’s house, pocketing $150 and some jewelry.

Upon finding her valuables missing, the seller called police and the suspect was arrested, though not before he spent some of the cash while cavorting with friends. Nokorwat
