Pursat police catch dinner and dough

The fishery police in Pursat province hit pay dirt on Monday when they apprehended a group of illegal fishermen fishing in prohibited waters.

Upon seeing the police the fishermen fled, leaving their tools behind, but hit a villager’s fish enclosure and were snatched by the cops.

Some 100 kilograms of fish was confiscated by police, who also agreed to let the men go for 500,000 riel for the damaged fish enclosure and a seemingly informal fine of 2,000,000 (nearly $500).
