Discreet burglary ends in plain-as-day beating

Police said the 24-year-old had taken advantage of an unlocked door to make his way into the Odong district home on Wednesday and grab the cash.

Unfortunately for our burglar, the sleeping resident awoke and sounded the alarm, one quickly responded to by overenthusiastic neighbours, who pummelled the thief within an inch of his life. KOH SANTEPHEAP
