‘Praying’ pilferers pinched near pagoda

Two men were arrested in Battambang town on Tuesday after they stole money and a camera from a pagoda earlier that same day.

Cops said the suspects had gone to the pagoda and acted as if they were praying, but while a monk was busy attending to devotees, they allegedly swiped 1 million riel (about $250) and the camera.

But witnesses yelled for help, and nearby cops were able to catch up with the pair and arrest them.
