CCTV proves useless in Banteay Meanchey car theft

CCTV proves useless in Banteay Meanchey car theft

Even the CCTV failed to catch all the details of a late-night carjacking in Banteay Meanchey province on Wednesday.

Borrowing his cousin’s vehicle to make deliveries, a sporting goods vendor parked it on the road before going to bed. When he came back in the morning, however, the spot was empty.

Dismay may have really set in when he took the footage from his security camera only to find that the suspects’ faces weren’t clearly visible in the footage.

Cops opened an investigation nonetheless, and are on the lookout for the fuzzy-faced filchers.
