Despite beating, alleged pig thief doesn’t squeal

It's one thing to call a policeman “pig”; it’s another thing entirely to steal a cop’s hog. Officers in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok have arrested a motodop, 47, for allegedly breaking into an officer’s house to steal one of his swine on Sunday night.

Following the recent theft of cows and pigs from the neighbourhood, local residents and the officer, 45, caught and roughed up the man, who denied the allegation, saying he had stopped off to answer nature’s call, not steal one of its creatures. KOH SANTEPHEAP
