An alleged Pursat town thief didn’t know when to cut his losses, and paid the price on Monday.
Police said the man had stolen a mobile phone and $1,200 from a house under construction.
He accidentally dropped the phone’s SIM card in a grocery, however, where it was found by the grocer who inserted it in his phone.
The grocer received calls from both the phone’s rightful owner as well as the suspect asking for the card back. Police were called, and when the thief showed up to claim his lost loot, the cops arrested him. KOH SANTEPHEAP
