Greengrocer rings up likely prison sentence

A greengrocer found himself nabbed for some environmentally unfriendly – and illegal – trade in the capital’s Dangkor district on Wednesday.

The trouble began when a bulldozer operator colluded with two construction workers to siphon diesel at a construction site to sell it to the grocer.

The site manager became suspicious when the machinery seemed to be consuming more oil than normal. During a DIY stakeout, the boss caught the three mid-siphoning and called police.

The trio confessed and tipped off police to the grocer’s role. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
