NOT ONLY THE COFFEE IS STEAMY AT CAFE
The owner of a coffee shop in Kampong Cham town that police claim was really a video sex club was arrested and questioned on Tuesday. Police carried out a raid of the steamy cafe after receiving complaints from nearby residents. Apparently, customers who called on the establishment for the purpose of consuming cup after cup of coffee found themselves unwittingly watching sex videos. Police say the raid yielded stacks upon stacks of racy discs, which were promptly confiscated. The owner of the cafe, 26, has been sent to court.

SUSPICIOUS ARMFUL FOILS MARKET THIEF
A 23-year-old accused thief was arrested by police in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district Wednesday after he allegedly stole from a stall in a local market. Police said the alleged thief swiped an armful of goods from the stall while the owner was away. The man initially escaped, but then an eagle-eyed witness spotted him and wondered why he was carrying such a large stack of loot in his arms. The witness then called police, who soon caught up with the suspect. The suspect allegedly admitted to the theft, then helpfully confessed to stealing on seven previous occasions. He has since been sent to court, police said.
