Thieves make a dog’s dinner of stealing spree

Two men masquerading as dog catchers were arrested by Takeo provincial police on Friday night, when they discovered their real business was stealing car batteries and motos.

Sos Ronr, 33, and Mek Pikeatha, 28, were known in their village as expert dog catchers.

But authorities responding to a complaint from a villager who alleged that the duo stole their car battery found them in possession of five stolen batteries and an ill-gotten moto.

The two suspects confessed to the crime, police said, explaining that neither is able to catch dogs. RASMEY KAMPUCHEA
