‘Buffalo rustler’ caught red-handed in Pursat

A Kampong Chhnang man was sent to court yesterday after allegedly admitting to stealing two buffaloes from a farmer in Pursat province.

The suspect, 35-year-old Touch Ton, was arrested yesterday as he was trying to sell the animals for 8 million riel (about $2,000).

The owner of the buffaloes, Thou Tith, happened to be passing by when he recognised his livestock.

“The suspect admitted in front of the police and the owner that he stole the buffaloes on April 27 and hid them in a forest for nearly a month,” said Kravanh district police chief Vong Savet.

Savet said that Ton was charged with theft and sent to Pursat Provincial Court.
