A middle-aged couple allegedly committed grand theft buffalo in Teuk Phos district in Kampong Chhnang on Thursday.
A farmer missing two of the animals filed a complaint with the local police, who went searching door to door.
The suspects found two grown buffalo hard to hide from the law and had to confess everything once the police found them in their yard.
The suspects said that they planned to sell the animals. They were sent to a provincial police station instead.
