Jewellery thief eludes steel bracelets, for now

Police in Pursat’s Phnom Kravanh district believed they found the loot but not their man on Sunday. After a woman, 27, reported that someone had broken into her house at about 2am, stealing jewellery worth more than $1,000, police went on the hunt for those responsible.

It didn’t take long for them to spot a man selling a bracelet – one of the stolen items – in a market. His explanation was that he had received it from his friend, a story the police bought. He was still arrested for selling stolen goods and the investigation continues. Rasmei Kampuchea
