Wine thief let go after misunderstanding

A sticky-fingered wine enthusiast was detained on Wednesday evening. The man had wandered into the Sovanna mall outlet of Lucky Supermarket, and attempted to pilfer a bottle of wine.

An attentive security guard caught sight of the unfolding crime and detained the shoplifter before it became clear he suffered a mental illness.

Rather than detain the man further, the security guard explained to him the error of his ways, before letting him go.
