Brother’s keeper: Cop says sibling will walk

Borrowing from relatives is not typically a police matter, unless, of course, your relative is a police official. A 30-year-old man was arrested in Kampong Cham on Tuesday, after, police say, he was caught illegally carrying a gun borrowed from his military police officer brother.

The suspect entered a market, stopping by a stall selling gold. However, security guards searched the man, and found the loaded gun.

When police questioned him, he said the firearm was borrowed from his brother. Police sent him to court for allegedly possessing a gun illegally with intent to commit a crime, but his brother guaranteed he won’t be prosecuted. DEUM AMPIL
