It’s OK, I’m family! Thief blags way into home

Simply say you’re a family member and doors will open in Cambodia, it appears. On Tuesday, a clothes vendor in a Kratie town market instructed the owner of a neighbouring stall to guard her shop while she went to the bathroom.

A 62-year-old woman then appeared, telling the “guard” she was a relative of the stall owner. She went inside, helped herself to $300 and quietly left. Needless to say, the stall owner was furious when she returned, but luckily the thief was arrested. Deum Ampil
