Two more gold-gang suspects arrested

TWO more suspected members of the heavily-armed gang of gold and bank robbers who have terrorised Phnom Penh and Kampong Cham province have been arrested and detained at Prey Sar prison, senior Criminal Bureau Police Chief Choun Narin said on Monday.

"We have arrested two more robbers and confiscated two illegal guns from them," he said, identifying the suspects as You Sovanara, 43, and Ting Kreoung, 38.

The gang, which police say has nine members, robbed an ACLEDA bank near City Hall a few weeks ago, stole US$75,000 in Kampong Cham province and robbed a gold shop of more than 11 kilograms of gold.
