Thieves bring childlike joy, weapons to robbery

Police have captured two men who used a toy gun to steal motorbikes in Tbong Khmum province. The duo was apprehended on Friday after attempting to run from a police illegal weapons checkpoint.

When officers caught the men, both in their 30s, they found a toy gun, filled with cement to give it the authentic weight and appearance. It had been used to steal two motorbikes subsequently sold on for $800. The pair were sent to court and could face time in big boy prison. KOH SANTEPHEAP
