Grafty granny swaps fools’ gold for fool’s gold

Dangkor district police are on the lookout for an elderly woman who allegedly conned two teens into giving her their jewellery.

Police said the victims, 15 and 19, were approached by an old woman at a local market who whispered to them: “Do not tell anyone; I found this gold and we will share it”.

The woman guided them to a quiet place where she asked for their necklace, bracelet and earrings, and gave them a bag of “gold”.

The woman then dashed off on a waiting moto before the girls realised that they had swapped their possessions – worth hundreds of dollars – for fake gold.
