Highly charged arrest for man stealing wires

Local residents were shocked to find a 34-year-old man stealing electricity cables along the road in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district on Monday night, promptly beating him up and handing him over to police.

The suspect confessed to his crime after his arrest, explaining that following the loss of his job, he had resorted to selling the metal in the wires, which netted him about 20,000 riel ($5) per kilo.
