Petrol-pumping pilfery punished by police

Two drivers for a gasoline company were arrested for allegedly pumping off a bit of petrol for personal gain on Monday.

According to a company representative, the foursome saw the opportunity for an illicit gasoline enterprise on the road from Preah Sihanouk to the company depot.

Stopping in Kampong Speu, the troublesome truckers sold 20 million riel worth, or 6,000 litres, of fuel before setting off.

Unable to account for the missing fuel, two of the drivers confessed while two others fled.
