Police Blotter: 5 Oct 2012

Running through rice fields, dodging police
A high-speed police chase ventured off the beaten path on Wednesday when the subject jumped off his stolen moto and legged it through a rice paddy. The 27-year-old allegedly knicked the vehicle from out front of its owner’s house in  Battambang town while police, who witnessed the incident, jumped up to follow in hot pursuit. The desperate thief gunned it down the road before abandoning his wheels by the wet field. The bike was returned to its owner while the thief made off with a splash. Kampuchea Thmey

Police say man acting shady on shady street
Patrolling police in Kampong Cham’s Kampong Siem district were instantly suspicious when they noticed a man shilly-shallying in a shady area of street. Officers approached the suspect stranger, only to see him scamper off. The plod gave chase and uncovered two packages of an illegal substance on the shifty sharper, who was duly shunted off to court.

Drunken evening leads to death of young man
A party in Takeo’s Kiri Vong district turned fatal on Wednesday when drinkers turned on a 22-year-old fellow booze hound. Police said the group were tipping a few too many when an argument broke out among the inebriated imbeciles, with just one apparent victim. The young man was killed with police only able to arrest three of his attackers. Koh Santepheap

Real gangstas don’t like it when a leg is touched
Four gangsters caused an unholy row inside a Battambang pagoda after another visitor supposedly touched the leg of a member of their crew. The fearsome foursome flew upon the victim, badly beating him for his petty faux pas. Scared witnesses dared not intervene in the rumble, which left the accidental limb handler with serious injuries. Police were called and sent the four suspects to court. Koh Santepheap  

Motorist goes bowling using humans as pins
A drunken motorist speeding around Pailin town caused havoc on Wednesday, but managed to zoom off unhurt. The careless careener collided with a moto carrying two passengers, knocking them to the ground and leaving them with serious injuries. Undeterred by the chaotic carnage, the hoon sped on, evading local police. His wounded victims were not so lucky and were also sent to court. Rasmey Kampuchea
