Mobile phone heist gets a bad reception

A 30-year-old Kampong Cham man tried to pull a fast one at a phone shop this week only to end up in cuffs. Police say he entered the shop, asking to see a variety of phones.

While the shop owner was opening cases and offering an array of options, he surreptitiously – or so he thought – slipped one of the phones into his pocket.

No dice. When he exited, the shop keeper quickly put two and two together and called for help.

Neighbours rushed and jumped on the hapless thief, holding him down on the ground until for the police arrived on the scene. Kampuchea Thmey
