Police Blotter: 1 Nov 2012

Will cock fight bettors be thrown in the coop?
The chickens came home to roost for one Kampot cockfighting operation this week, whose neighbours had long complained of the racket. The nest of iniquity, in Toek Chhou province, took place in a rented house and drew a far from paltry crowd, police said. When authorities raided the joint, they found a bevy of bettors, scrambling to get out. However, the plod managed to nab five shaken shills, who were later sent to court. Koh Santepheap

Speedy arrest for moto thief-turned-salesman
A Battambang resident who had his moto stolen saw a quick turnaround on his complaint after the crook was stung just hours after being reported on Tuesday. The moto thief, 30, was trying to unload his stolen wares at a local bike shop when he was sprung by officers. The victorious victim confirmed the vehicle was his and the pipped purloiner was sent to court. Kampuchea Thmey

Woman shows love for family by dealing drugs
A 53-year-old woman nabbed selling drugs in Stung Treng town was doing it to support her family, or so says the suspect. Police cuffed the woman after searching her house on Tuesday and finding her busy packaging pills. The mature-aged drug trafficker admitted to the criminal activity and was sent to face court.

Shouting market-goers alert police to theft
Two experienced necklace snatchers were caught out on Tuesday when a chorus of alarms brought the curtains down on their ruse. Police said the nimble-fingered friends regularly tried their hand on the busy market crowd in Kampong Speu’s Oddong district. This time, the victim let out a loud shout, joined by a vendor who witnessed the sleight-of-hand. The two crooks were arrested by market security guards. Koh Santepheap

Police put a stop to epic sword and stone battle
A Kampot street brawl that terrified nearby residents on Tuesday saw hooligans draw swords – only to be countered with hurled rocks. The brainless battle began between gangs of boozing hoodlums, with neighbours unable to stop it, police said. The cops arrived on the scene but were only able to arrest five members of the senseless skirmish – the rest scrammed. They were sent to court. Nokorwat
