Stealing spree leaves gang praying for mercy

A trio of less-than-pious parishioners turned a place of worship into a felonious free-for-all on Friday. Police said the three men went into a Pailin town pagoda feigning a desire to pray, only to relieve a fellow visitor of 1 million riel (about $250) and his camera as he waited to receive a blessing.

Luckily, a number of people witnessed the crime and shouted for police, who caught the scoundrels before they could escape the pagoda grounds. DEUM AMPIL
