Truants learn it’s not all fun and games
Six school-skippers in Kampong Cham town were dragged from their computer-gaming shop chairs by police on Monday after a group of peeved parents complained their children were continuously skipping school. Police later dis-covered the gaming shop was masquerading as a café and operating illegally. The shop owner bolted, while police destroyed the computers and games. The rueful students apologised and promised to stop cutting classes. Deum Ampil

The man allegedly locked himself in the house and began to pilfer property. However, a neighbour saved the day by calling out for help. Police embarked on a wild chase of the crook through the city’s streets. They eventually caught him and sent him to court. Koh Santepheap
