The ol’ switcheroo fails to make it past vendor

Perhaps looking to finance a nursery upgrade, a pregnant woman was busted in Sihanoukville on Wednesday while attempting to blindside a gold seller.

Police said the 29-year-old asked to take a look at a necklace from a local vendor, waited for her to become distracted, and handed back a fake.

The ruse didn’t last long as the shopkeeper quickly realised what had happened and began shouting for help. Making a less than top-speed getaway, the thief was unsurprisingly nabbed by market security and turned over to police. KOH SANTEPHEAP
