Koh Rong: Staff at Coco Boutique Resort on Koh Rong have sent CNE a video of a guest stealing cash from behind the reception desk.
The alleged theft took place at 8.30 am on May 21 shortly before the suspect left the island on the ferry.
An hour later the money was found to be missing and the CCTV was checked but the 9 am ferry had already weighed anchor.
During the morning other guests staying in the dorms also complained that they had items stolen.
The man has been named as Abdullah Adel, a Yemani citizen who has lived in Malaysia for around 10 years, according to his story to other guests.
He also claimed his passport was at the Malaysian embassy. The police were informed, as were the Malaysian embassy in Phnom Penh.
It is thought he will collect his passport shortly and return to Malaysia, so keep a watch out in case he turns up somewhere else and tries more tricks.
