Police Blotter: 27 May 2013

Canine-1-1 saves   woman from robber
Man’s best friend proved also to be woman’s best friend on Friday in Takeo province’s Samrong district, where a heedful hound alerted his mistress to the intruder in her house. Police said the 47-year-old suspect had entered the woman’s bedroom at night and was carrying away her gold earrings when the dog started barking, awaking the woman, who in turn called police. The suspect confessed, saying he’d lost all his money to gambling, and police returned the earrings to the woman. Nokorwat

Construction worker hammers policeman
A 32-year-old construction worker who denied stealing property from a mosque did not exactly help his case when he subsequently punched the investigating officer in the face. Police in Kandal province’s Takhmao town on Friday arrested the construction worker but had not handcuffed him when the officer asked the apparently offensive question. The suspect, who continued to deny the theft charges, was sent to court for both stealing and causing injury. Nokorwat

Neighbourhood watch saves man’s motorbike
Residents of Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district banded together on Saturday to help out a musical professional in their midst who otherwise would have been the victim of a motorbike theft. Police said the 33-year-old, who worked as a singer in a restaurant, had parked his bike in front of his house and gone inside after a long night of song when another man began walking the bike away. The suspect had made it some 100 metres when nearby residents stopped him and handed him over to the police. Kampuchea Thmey

Yama addicts arrested in central Phnom Penh
Three men were arrested for drug use on Friday in an area of the capital’s Chamkarmon district that police say is a favourite among addicts. Cops said they found the men taking “yama” methamphetamine when they raided the men’s building at night. They seized two small packages of the drug and some drug-related equipment from the men, one of whom insisted he was sleeping and had no idea the others were taking drugs. Police are searching for the men’s suppliers. Nokorwat

Crash destroys tuk-tuk and moto, injures two
A motodop and his customer were badly injured in the early hours of Friday when their motorbike hit a tuk-tuk in Phnom Penh’s Prampi Makara district. Police said the two vehicles were speeding along in the same direction when the tuk-tuk turned left without giving any prior notice. The moto hit the tuk-tuk from behind, leaving its two passengers badly injured and destroying both vehicles. The tuk-tuk driver was slightly injured. Nokorwat
