Easy score not so easy after all, suspect finds

A Kampong Cham town man was almost out some serious coin on Monday when he left $500 in an unlocked car. Police said the man had gone home to take a nap and parked his car in front of his house.

A 34-year-old allegedly noticed that the car’s defences were down and reached in, taking the money. The homeowner noticed and yelled for help, and nearby residents were all too eager to offer some.

They chased the suspect down and detained him until police arrived and sent him to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
