Man pulls off smashing car burglary in Kandal

Subtlety wasn’t the trademark of a 35-year-old thief trying to steal a camera from a car in Kandal province on Tuesday.

After the owner parked his car and entered a shopping centre, leaving his camera in the vehicle, the thief hurled a rock at the window, breaking it and making off with the loot.

Police were soon alerted to what was happening and a motorbike chase ensued. After police caught up with and arrested the alleged thief, he confessed and was sent to court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
