Late-night noodle stop ends with phone theft

Journalists are not paid a king’s ransom, but usually enough to stretch to buying a phone, so it’s unlikely two riders of a moto with “reporter” on the number plate who nicked a mobile yesterday were members of the press.

The theft may have been opportunistic as the pair had stopped for noodles at 1am in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district, when they pinched the food seller’s Samsung Galaxy, which she was charging.

A motodop driver pursued the pair, who ditched their ride and fled on foot.
