Recidivism catches up to Phnom Penh ex-con

A hapless thief on a bicycle met his match when he tried to steal an unattended bag and phone in Phnom Penh’s Chroy Changvar district.

The items’ owner saw him make the swipe, restrained him and hauled him off to the cop shop.

The 23-year-old suspect had previously been in jail for a year for stealing phones from a market, police said.

He returned to his old tricks eight months after his release.
