Police seek culprits in high-yield burglary

A home invasion in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district yielded the culprits almost $20,000 of swag on Friday.

The 26-year-old homeowner reportedly locked up her house in the morning to go and run her nearby market stall, but came back that afternoon to find a window smashed.
