Man graduates from poaching to brandishing

A neigbourly feud has landed a Pursat man in the slammer after he flashed his gun in a threatening manner.

Police said the 53-year-old had kept the AK-47 (illegally) to use for hunting in his Veal Veng district forest (also illegal) and to occasionally threaten his neighbour, with whom he was having a border dispute (yep, illegal).

The neighbour’s call to police finally had them investigate the man’s home, where they found the rifle, which he claimed to have “found” in the jungle whilst illegally trapping animals. He’s been sent to court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
