Thief scores a buck in bag-snatching operation

Thief scores a buck in bag-snatching operation

A larcenous, albeit luckless, bag snatcher was busted in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district over a measly buck on Saturday.

Cops said the man zoomed up alongside a woman and snagged her bag, prompting cries for help.

Ever vigilant capital residents sprang into action, knocking the man from his moto and giving him a light roughing-up before handing the perp over.

The man confessed to his crime – and his disappointment – telling cops the bag looked like a sweet score, but only contained about one dollar.
