Siem Reap pockets a little safer from picking

A ring of tourist-targeting pickpockets was smashed open by police in Siem Reap’s infamous Pub Street on Wednesday.

Police arrested two suspicious individuals the previous day on pickpocketing charges, and the pair proved quick to spill the beans on nine other erstwhile brothers in crime.

Armed with the identities of the other pickpockets, the cops had no trouble scouring Siem Reap’s less than salubrious main strip to arrest them, and are preparing to send the gang to court.
