Go out naked - cure for bagsnatching

Phnom Penh Municipal Police Chief Sar Thet said the authorities were committed to tackling bag-snatching.

“We are taking tough measures to reduce the cases. We have clear measures to prevent bag-snatching,” he said.

He said apart from police efforts, people also had to be vigilant and take steps to avoid such incidents. He called on people to avoid wearing jewellery and carrying bags and purses on the street.

“Authorities cannot be everywhere because we have limited forces. People need to be careful and take steps. They can’t depend solely on the authorities,” he said.


So do not wear jewelry or carry any bags and naked is probably better so nothing to snatch. That is being vigilant because you cannot depend on authorities.

Good taste prompts me to avoid the obvious pun on what a thief could bag.

Someone should tell this guy. There's rumours on the internets that his wristwatch is worth $2 million.

2. No helmet
