Boat-jacker fails to make it to the high seas

An alleged boat thief, 20, sailed into a jail cell on Tuesday after being arrested in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district. A vegetable farmer, 30, said he had bought the boat for $350 before it was stolen from a riverbank on April 10.

He filed a complaint with his village authorities, and also tried to track down the suspect himself, to no avail. Authorities eventually found the alleged perpetrator and handed him over to police. The boat was returned. KOH SANTEPHEAP
