Precinct’s prescient police pinch gunman

Cambodia may not yet have a “future crimes” division but a little preventative action likely prevented a robbery on Wednesday.

Police were patrolling in Prey Veng’s Peam Chor district when they saw a suspicious-looking man on a moto who appeared to be frantically concealing something.

Sure enough, when they managed to chase him down, they discovered an AK along with 29 bullets. Both the suspect and firearm are now in custody.
