‘Phony cop’ busted with fake pistol

A security guard for HNK Company was arrested in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district early on Saturday for impersonating a police officer by donning a National Police uniform, complete with a fake pistol, district police chief Mak Hong said yesterday.

According to Hong, suspect Touch Ravuth is expected to be charged by the Phnom Penh Municipal Court today for both impersonating a police officer and drug use.

“He was arrested by police while [they] were driving motorbikes on patrol in Sen Sok district’s Toek Thla commune and found him wearing a National Police uniform with a plastic pistol at his waist on January 4,” Hong said.

“After checking and questioning him, we knew that he was a fake officer,” he added.

The day after Ravuth’s arrest, Hong said, police took him to search his house and found military clothing and paraphernalia there.

“Our police investigation, revealed he was a drug user as well,” Hong added.
