Bored village vegetable swindler branches out

A notorious village vegetable thief was arrested in Kandal province on Tuesday, after going on a one-man rampage with a slingshot.

The 42-year-old was reportedly known to local cops for his habit of vegetable pilfering, but changed his criminal tack when he began indiscriminately firing stones at other villagers.

When he got tired of tormenting the neighbourhood, he turned his attention to stationary targets: fuse boxes on electricity pylons. After breaking the glass on 13 boxes, he was arrested.
