Unimaginative burglar trips up on second visit

Criminals often return to the scene of the crime. But a suspected thief in Pailin town took his sweet time, only revisiting the home he burgled several months prior on Tuesday.

The 25-year-old crook broke into a woman’s house at about 5am, causing her to scream bloody murder. Her neighbours caught the thief after he bolted at the shrieking.

After being handed over to police, he said he had pawned a number of the woman’s household items from the earlier robbery. NOKORWAT
