Trio robbed migrant workers of valuables

Military police in the northwestern border town of Poipet have arrested two men and remain on the hunt for one more after the trio allegedly tricked migrant workers out of money and jewelry, a commander said yesterday.

The suspects have been accused of waiting at the Cambodia-Thai border for unsuspecting Cambodians returning home, promising to mind their valuables and cash so border police wouldn’t confiscate them.

“The suspects then fled after collecting money from their victims,” said Horm Muth, a military police commander, adding that they escaped with more than $800. Hun Vuthy, also known as Nhanh, 24, and Sok Chanthy, 24, both from Poipet, were later arrested.
