Thief puts a ring on it, leaves lover holding bag

Love can be a fleeting thing – especially when you’re being set up by a con man with designs on a jewellery store, as a Pursat town woman found out on Tuesday.

According to police, the woman had gone to the store with her new beau and tried on a necklace, while the man tried on a ring valued at some $1,000.

When the slippery character went to pay, however, he found he was short on cash. The man ducked out – with the ring – to get more money, promising to return shortly.

He never did, of course, and the shopkeeper held the woman until police arrived. KOH SANTEPHEAP
