Police pin robberies on man wielding an AK

Police in Ratanakkiri’s Banlung didn’t need a great deal of detective skill in putting a stop to a string of armed robberies on Sunday, thanks to the perp’s lack of criminal discretion.

The man in question was spotted by police, strolling round town with an AK-47.

When questioned, he revealed that he’d bought the gun from a broker, but police quickly realised the man in their charge was also responsible for a spate of AK-wielding armed robberies – a charge the man confirmed.
