Mouthy capital junkie busted for auto-arson

A suspected drug addict was arrested on Monday evening for setting his Tuol Kork house ablaze and telling everyone he did it, police said.

The man, who was 25 and jobless, started the fire by plunking his bedding directly on the cooking stove. Just a few hours later he was arrested by police and sent to the station.

Villagers said the man used the now-damaged house to abuse drugs with a companion. As luck would have it, the fire was put out and the drug den salvaged.
