Six months later, cops arrest one in gold scam

Fool's gold fraud came back to haunt a woman in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district on Saturday, about six months after the deed.

In November, the suspect and three accomplices pulled off a scam on a 23-year-old woman, dropping a bag of fake gold near her while the other two pretended to find it, promising to split the goods if the woman gave them about $1,000 worth of jewellery she had.

The woman confessed when police tracked her down. Authorities are still looking for the other three. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
