The family that rustles together, stays together

Crime can be a family affair in Kampong Chhnang province. Three generations of men – from grandfather to grandson – were arrested on Sunday, accused of stealing a farmer’s cow.

After complaints from the 42-year-old farmer that his bovine, worth $1,000, was missing, an investigation led police to a nearby plantation, where they found the gruesome remains of the cow.

Police arrested the plantation’s owner, who confessed that he, his son and grandson had killed the cow, selling it for beef. What was left of the cow was returned to the farmer. KOH SANTEPHEAP
