Rings recovered amid hasty resale in market

Rings recovered amid hasty resale in market

More likely seeking the cash from resale than planning myriad wedding proposals, two men managed to make off from a market in Siem Reap armed with 400 rings, estimated to be worth $30,000.

The pair allegedly crept in late at night last week and knocked off the goods without anyone noticing. In despair, the jeweller contacted police the next day.

The report coincided with complaints that two men were flogging cheap rings at a nearby market. Police arrested both and discovered the loot in their house. KOH SANTEPHEAP
