Tourist’s unwatched bag snatched, recovered

A Sihanoukville tourist might’ve gotten a little too comfortable with her surroundings on Saturday. While the foreigner took a swim, she left her bag and phone unattended, an opportunistic theft that one 31-year-old local thief couldn’t pass up.

Lucky enough for the swimmer, police spotted the man trying to make off with the purse, and managed to snatch back what the suspect later admitted was not his first stolen item. KOH SANTEPHEAP
