Burgling homes kept trio afloat until arrests

Roaming the streets in search of other people’s valuables was more than a living – though hardly a decent one – for two men and a woman in Siem Reap town.

While it lasted, the trio allegedly stole clothes, bicycles and mobile phones, among other things, from those with lax home security.

Finding out how difficult it is to make a career out of that sort of work, the three, aged 25 and 35, were arrested early on Wednesday with valuables worth about $1,700. They soon confessed. KOH SANTEPHEAP
