A stolen phone was the subject of another crime in the capital’s Meanchey district on Saturday.
This time, three boyish burglars snuck into a home while the owner was bathing, and slipped off with the stolen goods.
When the man confronted the mischievous youths they confessed to selling the $400 phone for a measly $23.
He offered to pay back the $23 at the shop, but the owner had already resold the phone.
Police mediation resulted in a subsquent settlement that saw the shopkeep pay him back for the hot phone.
