Gang member whittles away furniture, future
A gang member who had eluded police for two years was finally hauled downtown for questioning in Banteay Meanchey province’s Monkul Borei district yesterday. Police said the suspect, 32, and three other men were involved in a daring raid on a furniture shop two years ago. The suspect had slipped through the fingers of officers as they apprehended his three gang mates and had since been lying low – though not on the stolen furniture – before being arrested yesterday. Nokorwat
