Arrest made as rubber hits the road mid-flight

An alleged rubber thief in Tbong Khmum provincial town tried to stretch his luck a little too far on Wednesday.

According to police, the man and four others were spied by patrolling security guards trying to make off with 10 kilos of rubber.

The suspects hopped on motos, but the guards gave chase, nabbing one of them when he had the misfortune to fall off of the getaway vehicle – along with the rubber.

The man told police it was his first offence, though the guards maintained otherwise. NOKORWAT
