If nothing else, he was a generous thief.
A man, 46, was charged in Kandal on Friday over a string of break-ins that netted him more than $8,000 in property that he later sold to buy his siblings gifts.
Police said the man’s crime spree had also included stealing motorbikes. He was arrested after one of his victims complained.
Authorities were hardly surprised when his record showed he had been imprisoned for auto theft in Phnom Penh in 2008. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
