Diamonds are forever, and so are warrants

A presumably long-forgotten jewellery heist came back to haunt a Daun Penh district man this week.

Police said the 34-year-old had relieved guests of their bling at gunpoint back in 2006 at a Svay Rieng town wedding before disappearing for nearly 10 years.

The fun ended on Monday when Phnom Penh police, acting on a Svay Rieng warrant, caught him drinking with friends and finally awarded him some unwanted new jewellery, a set of steel bracelets.
