Stall keeper asks, ‘Who watches the watchmen?’

You know things are dire when even the security guards hired to protect your money can’t be trusted not to steal it.

Police suspect this was exactly what three guards at a market in Kampong Cham’s Prey Chhor district did on Wednesday when an all-too-trusting currency changer left almost $10,000 in a so-called “safety” box in her stall.

The woman told police she had not taken the money home at night – because the market had three security guards – and returned in the morning to find it gone. Also nowhere to be seen: the security guards. Deum Ampil
