The perfect crime goes awry for greedy thieves

Three suspects in Por Sen Chey district flew too close to the sun on Wednesday when they attempted to repeat a successful scheme that had netted them a moto and several mobile phones the first time around, police said.

Last week, the men allegedly pretended to be staying at a guesthouse to gain access to rooms and make off with the goods. It was the perfect crime, made imperfect when they tried to repeat it and were recognised by a security guard, police said. Two escaped while one was arrested. KOH SANTEPHEAP
