Sozzled shoplifter can’t stumble from justice

Police in Takeo province nabbed one of a pair of boozy bandits in Kiri Vong district, after the men walked out of a store with a crate of beer and $300 from the cash register.

The suspects, 19 and 22, had taken advantage while the store owner was distracted by other customers, and ran with their loot.

In no fit state to escape, cops caught the younger of the pair later that day, who confessed they’d drunk the beer and split the money.
