Life’s a beach – then your phone gets nicked

A pair of beachcombing alleged thieves in Sihanoukville thought they’d struck gold on Sunday only to find themselves in steel bracelets instead.

According to police, a 13-year-old boy and a 19-year-old student allegedly snatched phones and cash belonging to two out-of-towners who were taking a dip at the beach.

The victims shouted for help, and bystanders made a citizen’s arrest, turning the two over to police.

Police sent the student to court, and an NGO gave the boy a lesson in not stealing other people’s things.
