Assault rifles found in local fishermen’s nets

Fishy business of the wrong kind has drawn police attention to a fishing village in Kampong Cham this week.

According to local authorities, some men dredged up an AK-47 and an M16 in their nets while out fishing on Sunday and handed them over to police.

Observing that the weapons had been dropped in the water recently, police concluded that suspects fleeing police had cast them into the river during their flight.

Authorities are now on the hunt for the fugitives.
