Disappointed thieves unimpressed by loot
Two men were arrested in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district on Saturday after police caught them throwing away a snatched bag that, to their dismay, contained only a book and a pen. Police said that while a foreigner was sitting in a tuk-tuk, the men drove past and stole the bag from her. However, they were shocked to find that no money was inside, and they seemingly weren’t impressed with the quality of the book or the pen. While they were throwing the bag away, police spotted and arrested them. The victim was unhurt, and police returned her worthless bag.
