Man held for wearing fake military uniform

A 42-YEAR-OLD man was charged yesterday with impersonating a military captain and stealing money from his employer, police said. Battambang deputy provincial police chief Cheth Vanny said the suspect was arrested on Tuesday in Muong Russei district’s Prey Svay commune. The arrest came after a local businessman complained the suspect, his employee, purchased the uniform with 2.5 million riels (about US$618) the businessman gave him to buy rice from local villagers. Cheth Vanny said the suspect is being detained at a provincial prison while police investigate who sold him the uniform.
