Fourth time’s the charm for cops, not the burglar

A notorious Sihanoukville burglar is under lock and key for the fourth time after being pinched yet again for an alleged break-in.

Police said the man has broken into local homes and guesthouses numerous times and done three previous jail stints before being fingered on Saturday for another burglary.

When police picked him up, he was carrying a stolen phone and 10 small knives he said he used to pick locks. He’s been sent to court, where he’s no doubt a familiar figure at this point. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
