Man held over alleged $150,000 factory heist

A man who allegedly stole $150,000 from a garment factory in Kampong Speu was arrested in Phnom Penh yesterday, police said.

The suspect, Van Chantom, 33, from the capital’s Russey Keo district, was believed to have stolen $100,000 and 200 million riel, about $50,000, from the factory earlier this month before going into hiding in Por Sen Chey district.

District police chief Khim Sarann said his forces had cooperated with Kampong Speu police to apprehend the suspected thief.

“The arrest was made according to a Kampong Speu Provincial Court warrant, dated August 22, and it charged the suspect with theft,” he said. “After the arrest, the suspect was interrogated immediately by Kampong Speu provincial police.”

The suspect remains at provincial police headquarters awaiting further interrogation.
