If you’re going to steal a gun, try a shop, not a cop

A waste picker in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district learned on Wednesday that a policeman’s gun is not for recycling.

Police say the 30-year-old man was standing near the scene of a bust when he suddenly grabbed the gun from an officer and made a run for it.

When police caught up with him, they forced him to return the weapon and brought him back to the station for further questioning. KOH SANTEPHEAP
