Capital coppers catch sword-wielding thief

A sadly recidivist samurai is going back to the big house following a distressingly penny-ante robbery in the capital’s Chbar Ampov district late on Wednesday.

Police said the two-bit hood had unsheathed his trusty “samurai” sword in search of loot only to score a measly $10 from his 51-year-old victim.

It was significant enough for our victim to file a police complaint that helped authorities track down our swordsman that very night.
