Pawn shops play hard ball with pair of crooks

Pawn shops may not be the best place to resell stolen property, as a 23-year-old man in Kampong Chhnang’s Kampong Tralach district found out on Friday.

Two men went to a pawn shop to sell a phone they had snatched off a woman on Thursday, police said.

But authorities had alerted local pawn shop owners to be on the lookout for the phone.

As one of the suspects waited, the shop owner called police. One suspect was arrested, while the other fled the store before police arrived.
