Arsonist doesn’t burn bridges, gets arrested

An arsonist's shady past finally burned him on Wednesday in Kratie province.

Police said the 34 year old had burned a man’s house to the ground in a rage over an unpaid debt some nine years ago in Kampong Cham province.

After torching the victim’s home over the $500, he fled to neighbouring Kratie, where he lived quietly until police finally figured out his whereabouts this week. He’s now awaiting trial.
