A snapshot of freedom flushed down the toilet

A would-be thief on Saturday tried to get a free camera out of a toilet trip. The 33-year-old suspect printed out documents at a printing shop in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district, police said.

He then asked the store’s owner to use the bathroom, where he fidgeted with the toilet to make the water run continuously.

Leaving the restroom, the man told the owner the toilet was broken and tried nicking a Nikon camera while the owner looked at the toilet.

The crime was foiled by the owner’s cousin, who saw the theft and called police. The suspect was arrested. NOKORWAT
