Wine heist turns sour after thief caught in act

A shoplifter who was arrested in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on Tuesday may not have been up to much as a thief, but at least he had good taste in wine.

The 34-year-old strolled into a mini-mart, looking every bit the typical customer, before slipping two bottles of top-notch vino into his bag and wandering out, assuming he’d got away with it.

But staff spotted the crime on CCTV monitors, gave chase, detained the suspect and called the police.
