Police Blotter: 17 Dec 2012

Never steal a 70cc when  you’re on CCTV
A Joyriding garment worker’s freedom was not even hanging by a thread on Wed-nesday after she was caught on video stealing her colleague’s Honda Cub motorbike. After making a getaway from the factory, in the capital’s Dangkor district, on the 70cc moto, it was another type of CC – a security camera – that proved her undoing. Police said the owner checked the CCTV footage at the factory and relived the woman’s crime, which led to police arresting her. Koh Santepheap

Wrong too strong for wife of wan Don Juan
A Lackluster lothario turned in a pitiful performance when he unsuccessfully tried to entice his wife into making a romantic getaway with him on a stolen motorbike. Police said the suspect stole his friend’s moto on Wednesday night and, rather unimaginatively, hid it in a forest to collect the next day. The man tried to lure his wife to Kampong Cham in the morning, but upon noticing their carriage was a rather unappealing – and stolen – moto, she was suitably turned off. The man rode solo and was arrested the next day. Kampuchea Thmey

Picked, pickpocketed by a pack of park punks  
Punks who packed a punch picked a phone from a pocket – and  picked a fight in the process – in a park on Saturday. Police said the victim was sitting in a garden when the two suspects approached him. One of them forced a phone from the man and, when the victim shouted for help, the larger of the two men began to beat him. His cries alerted nearby police who arrived in time to arrest the suspects.

Breakfast arrest yet another wake-up call
An unrepentant drug dealer who refused to answer his previous wake-up calls was arrested on Saturday for a fifth time – this time over breakfast. Officers from the anti-drug department and Pursat provincial police swooped down on the 29-year-old man, crashing his morning meal, and arresting him for drug possession. Still hungry for more, they raided the house, confiscating drug equipment from his bedroom. Kampuchea Thmey

Man meets tragic end in electrical accident
A construction worker died from electrocution at a road works site in Kampong Cham province’s Cheung Prey district on Saturday while carrying electric wires. Police said the victim, 19, from Batheay district, was installing electricity in the office of Sian Hai Construction Company, but he did not have the experience to do so. He was sent to hospital immediately but died on the way. DAP News
