Tough times lead to tough crimes at market

A 22-year-old woman tried to grab and run at a Phnom Penh market on Sunday but was stopped by security guards.

The woman pretended to be a buyer at a market selling gold jewelry in Sen Sok district on Sunday.

Asking to see a ring in one of the cases, the shoplifter plucked the valuable from under the unsuspecting shopkeeper and ran.

Police nabbed the pilferer who claimed she stole because she is poor. Kampuchea Thmey
