Kampong Cham locals never forget a robbery

Two suspects learned the hard way that there’s no statute of limitations on a robbed family out for justice.

The men, 33 and 38, were part of a gang of five that burgled a family’s home in Kampong Cham’s Chikreng district in 2001, injuring one of the family members.

The successful robbers fled to Siem Reap, where they hid for 13 years until two of them visited home on Friday and ended up in the clink. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
