Sticky-fingered teen robs green-thumbed monk

A monk and gardening enthusiast in Kandal had his money stolen by a teen with his eye on a different kind of green on Tuesday. Police said the berobed cleric had left home to plant flowers in the park, only to return for a hard-earned rest to find his room had been tossed and about $500 was missing.

Luckily, the 19-year-old thief was still in the courtyard and holding a wad of cash.

Police were called in and made the arrest. KOH SANTEPHEAP
