Comical caper fails as man falls from ladder

A botched burglary landed a man from Kampong Chhnang town in prison on Sunday after an alleged night-time burglary spree was a little too loud.

Police said the 25-year-old suspect used a ladder to climb through the window of the sleeping victim so that he could nab two of her phones.

But on his way back down, she awoke and screamed for help, causing the man to fall from the ladder. He was quickly arrested. DEUM APIL
