Victim stays afloat to help sink boat thieves

If the police narrative holds true, three men arrested for the theft of a boat in Kampong Chhnang’s Kampong Leng district early on Tuesday could not have foreseen what would ironically bring them down: another boat.

As soon as the victim, a farmer, noticed that his vessel went missing the previous night, he borrowed one from a neighbour, tracked the suspects via the wine-dark waterways and, with the help of police, found the boat as it was allegedly being sold by the trio. Police sent the men to court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
