Old habits die hard and burn repeat offender

Police in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district apprehended an allegedly notorious phone snatcher who recently graduated to conning people out of motorbikes.

Police said they received a call from a man whose friend had “borrowed” his moto last year, only to disappear. The man had spotted the suspect by chance, and called in the cops.

The man attempted to flee, but police chased him down, finding him to be a suspected phone thief. In fact, at the time of his arrest, they said, the man was on his way to the phone shop to sell some stolen wares. NOKORWAT
