Thieves go to a lot of trouble for cheap phone

Thieves go to a lot of trouble for cheap phone

A pair of gun-toting bandits will be disappointed to find their burgled bag of loot bare of any cash after a robbery on Tuesday in Kratie province.

The two men pulled a gun on a couple arriving home from the market, demanding they turn over the woman’s bag.

Not satisfied with petty theft, the rampaging robbers decided to add assault to their rap list, hitting the husband over the head.

The victims said they weren’t too fussed though, since the bag contained nothing more than a cheap phone.
