Pit stop creates window for bus bag-snatching

Ignore the “don’t leave any valuables on the bus” sign at your peril, as one lady riding from the capital to Banteay Meanchey on Tuesday learned.

Police said the woman had left her purse on the bus during a rest stop when a fellow female passenger nicked her bag before fleeing.

The victim saw her running, however, and the bus driver called police, who arrested the 38-year-old suspect with the purse and $200 in cash. DEUM AMPIL
