Necklace-snatcher takes tumble off moto

As every half-decent criminal knows, it’s essential to plan your getaway as carefully as the crime itself, because that’s when things often go wrong.

Such was the experience of a 30-year-old thief in Pursat town on Monday who snatched a necklace from around the neck of a woman coming home from a market while he was passing on his motorbike.

The victim cried for help, spurring traffic police to give chase, and despite riding as fast as he could, the suspect lost his balance and fell from his moto. He has been sent to court.
