Bejewelled defrauder sent to local court
A 35-year-old man was arrested in Siem Reap town on Saturday on suspicion of defrauding a mobile phone vendor. According to police, the suspect dressed himself in fancy looking but fake jewellery and asked the female vendor where her husband was. He then claimed that the husband had promised him 10 mobile phones, which he would pay back later. He pretended to call the husband and told the vendor that the “husband” had approved. The woman later called the husband after handing over the phones, and he told her he had never heard of the man. He was arrested immediately as he attempted to escape on a motorbike, and police said he confessed to the charges. RASMEY KAMPUCHEA
