POLICE

ARSON RETORT FOR SPURNED EX-SPOUSE
A man allegedly set fire to his ex-wife’s house after she refused to take him back, police in Pursat province said. Investigators said the once-happy couple have not lived together for more than three years. But the man visited his ex-wife Wednesday, imploring her to agree to heal their shattered relationship – even though he happened to have a new partner already. The wife refused, citing a tendency towards violence. The man then burned her house to the ground. Police have arrested the man and sent him to court, where he reportedly made a full confession.

MAN PICKS MURDER OVER MARRIAGE: COPS
A man in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district admitted he murdered his girlfriend because he was afraid she would demand they get married after a sexual tryst, police said. Police said they found the victim’s clothed body in the bathroom of the man’s rented house. Police arrested five men for questioning, after which one of the men allegedly admitted to the murder. He told police, allegedly, that he and his girlfriend had been together for more than a year.

SEASHORE THIEVERY SUSPECTS ARRESTED
Two men in Preah Sihanouk province have been arrested after they allegedly stole a tourist’s “money bag” Tuesday. Police said the two opportunistic suspects swiped the bag while the tourist was out for a leisurely swim. They criticised the robbery, saying that such behaviour has a negative effect on tourism in Cambodia. The two suspects admitted to the theft, even helpfully telling officers that the incident was not the first time they had stolen from a tourist, police said. One suspect said he was a construction worker in Sihanoukville and ventured to the beach every evening in the hopes of stealing things.

HOUSE-RENTING DRUG USERS NABBED
Police have arrested two men they say were caught using drugs in a rented house in Chamkarmon district Tuesday. Police said they became suspicious of the men after seeing them buying drugs from a man at a market. Officers followed the pair and allegedly witnessed them using drugs. Neighbours reported that the two suspects left their homes because they were angry with their families. They decided to rent a house, as one does. Neighbours said they believed that the two suspects were far too young to be able to afford rent.
