Police easily pick up scent of garlic thief

A garlic thief was unable to effectively cover his tracks on Saturday, making it all too easy for the authorities to pick up on his scent.

The alleged thief stole a 20-kilo bag of garlic at a market in Kampong Chhnang’s Kampong Chhnang district.

He then sold it on to a woman at a bargain price. Unaware the produce was hot, the new buyer tried to sell it back to a vegetable seller, who immediately identified it as her produce and called the cops.

Following a brief interrogation, the cops picked up the garlic thief, who is now behind bars.
