Police Blotter: 7 Sep 2012

Thieves worse for wear after cops unravel case
Two men driven by material concerns robbed premises in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet district last Wednesday, taking off with 500 items of clothing. The victim, a clothes seller, had his stock packed up and ready for delivery when the alleged thieves broke in. After an investigation, police knocked on the door of the suspects to find the stolen goods. The pair could not explain the mountain of clothing in their house and were sent to court. Koh Santepheap

Fruit of loins nabbed for fruits of illegal labour
A suspected moto thief, who police say has been nicking off with the odd bike since 2009, has shown that at least he is a good son. The 29-year-old was found visiting his mother in Kandal’s Takmov district after fleeing Kandal from three years of suspected involvement in a moto-thieving gang. After investigating for more than a year, local police found him back home and put him under arrest. Kampuchea Thmey

Victim discovers love is about timing your run
A poorly timed seduction ended in tears when the object of affection’s husband came home, none too happy with the daytime match. The wife said she was merely talking with a friend but the jealous husband was not convinced, beating his 33-year-old rival until he required hospitalisation. Police in the Sen Sik district were called and kept the man for questioning. Deum Ampil

Thugs, but not phone, charged after attack
A man in Stung Treng’s Talaborivat district could possibly be regretting his decision not to lend a thug his phone recharger on Wednesday. After his request was turned down, the cell-less gang-member allegedly came back with five mates and exacted unreasonable revenge on the man and three of his friends, leaving all with serious injuries. Luckily, police intervened in time and sent the six to court. Rasmey Kampuchea  

Crime network wireless after cops catch crooks
Four members of the same family seen selling 39 kilograms of wire stolen from a factory were an easy catch for police in Preah Sihanoukville this week. The alleged thieves broke into a factory at night, making off with the heavy loot and then selling it. After spotting them spruiking the haul, police had no trouble in uncoiling the crime and sent them to court. Kampuchea Thmey
