Family greets prodigal son – so do local police

Time might heal wounds, but it doesn’t help if you’ve got a warrant on your head, as a man from Preah Vihear discovered.

The 31-year-old was arrested on Sunday after allegedly beating a villager following an argument in Sa’ang district in July 2009.

After more than five years evading the law as a plantation worker, the man returned home on the weekend and was quickly arrested. He reportedly told officers he thought that his crime had been forgotten.
