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
