Armed addict arrested for firing off threats

A gun-related incident ended without violence on Saturday when a drug addict took to the streets of Pursat town with a rifle.

Residents called the police saying the suspect, 48, was walking up and down a local street threatening to kill anyone who looked at him.

The situation only came to an end when cops snuck up on him from behind and wrestled the gun away. Illegal gun charges await. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
