Smooth theft doesn’t look so smooth on CCTV

A couple made for a pair of genuinely unwelcome guests at a Phnom Penh guesthouse this weekend when they stole a laptop computer.

Police said the duo were visiting from Battambang when they spied the unattended laptop at the reception area.

Slyly slipping it into their bag, the twosome though they’d gotten away with it, not realising that the entire incident had been recorded on CCTV.

They’re both now checked in at the grey-bar hotel.
