Teach a man to fish, he’ll still go for a gun

A fisherman, who locals say was a regular down by the Tonle Sap in Chroy Changvar, has been arrested for allegedly impersonating a police officer.

On January 23 the man reportedly found an AK-47 among his daily catch of fish and has since been brandishing the weapon all along the banks of the Tonle sap, extorting other fisherman, claiming to be a police officer. Initially, witnesses say, he began demanding bribes of 500 to 1,000 riel, but in just a few days went up to 10,000 riel.

The cops netted the fishing gangster on Monday.
