Armed robbery: Home of an RCAF officer gets looted

Jewellery and cash totalling $50,000 dollars was stolen from the Phnom Penh residence of a major general in the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces while he and his wife were out.

Major Huoth Chan Yarann, chief of Tuol Kork district police, confirmed that the residence of Major General Kim Reaksmey, 35, and his wife, Per Chan Navy, 40, in Teuk La’ak III commune was robbed on Friday night.

A commune police officer who asked not to be named because he is not authorised to speak to the press told the Post yesterday that two men parked a Toyota Camry, later used in their getaway, outside the house prior to gaining entry.

According to the officer, two maids employed by the general were serving the suspects water when one allegedly pulled out a knife and the second bound and taped the mouths of both women.

Both suspects have been identified as acquaintances of the general during the preliminary police investigation. The major general and his wife could not be reached for comment yesterday.
