Gas station no parking lot for wealthy men

Gas station no parking lot for wealthy men

A big-spending, heavy drinker learned a gas station is no place to sleep when loaded with valuables on Monday.

The 34-year-old man had drank a little too much and rather than head home, he pulled his car into a Caltex gas station in the capital’s Tuol Kork district.

While the victim was deep in a snooze, a thief and his accomplice spotted the car. The pair broke in and stole the sleeping boozer’s wallet.

The victim claims he lost some $2,000, and hopes to get it back from the burglar the police arrested on Wednesday. DEUM AMPIL
