B-and-E double-dip puts thief in double jeopardy

A former jailbird has had what might be his swansong after attempting a repeat break-in to a home in Banteay Meanchey on Wednesday night.

Police say the suspect, 18, who had previously been jailed for theft, entered the victim’s home just as she was falling asleep.

His efforts to snatch a money bag and motorbike were interrupted when the victim was roused, spurring him to threaten her with a knife.

Her cries were nonetheless heard by neighbours who called for police help, with officers arriving in time to arrest the suspect. He has now been sent (back) to court.
