Luckless lethargy for resting rice farmer

A snooze in the rice paddy was all it took for a Pailin farmer to get cleaned out on Monday.

Police said the man had wandered into the farmland behind his house when he decided to nap.

Alas, a thief took the opportunity to walk in the front door, toss the house and walk away with $2,000 cash.

Back from dreamland, the farmer walked into the messy house and the sad discovery.

Sadly, neighbors had seen the thief enter, but assuming him a relative, paid it no mind.
