For thief, long arm of law has long memory

Family reunions may be known for drama, but a 27-year-old man from Pursat town upped the ante by ending his homecoming in handcuffs.

The man allegedly robbed a couple of their motorcycle by gunpoint in 2005. He left the victims seriously injured and high tailed it out of town.

When the man came back on Saturday to visit his mother, he hoped nine long years was enough for police to forget. No such luck. Police slapped on the cuffs in short order. Koh Santepheap
