Police Blotter: 11 Sep 2012

Veteran cow thief touts statistics of his career
A habitual cow crook was finally arrested in Kandal’s Saang district on Saturday. The 52-year-old man ran into trouble over his nefarious dairy dealings after nearby residents started to notice a lack of mooing on their own propety. They suspected foul cow play and filed complaints with the police, who made the arrest. The thief admitted to his deed and bragged of absconding with more than 90 cows from Vietnam during the course of his lifetime. Police have sent the smooth criminal to court. Koh Santepheap

Bloody fighting doesn’t stop when police arrive
A crew of more than 20 men engaged in mortal combat Saturday in Battambang town. A plethora of weapons were present, including knives, stones and swords to attack each other. The police, whose arrival did not bring peace to the scuffle, attempted to arrest the men by dividing them into two factions. It didn’t work and the tussling continued. Several of the brawlers escaped before the police put a lid on the public quarrel, and 20 men were arrested. They are now being questioned by the police. Kampuchea Thmey
