Picture this: Camera theft lands teen in jail

A beach bum/fraudster was snared in Kampot town on Monday, after posing as a beachgoer’s relative to make off with his camera.

The 17-year-old suspect reportedly walked into a cafe where the man had left his valuables while he swam, telling the assistant he was a relative who’d come to collect the snapper.

But the victim raised the alarm after returning from his dip to discover his property missing, and cops caught up with the thief based on a detailed description from the shopkeeper.
