Witless ambushers fall into officers’ clutches

Two thieves failed in their attempts to outwit patrol police in Prey Veng on Tuesday evening.

The pair of recurrent offenders got wind of a crackdown by local authorities, which they planned to foil by ambushing officers with wooden sticks and machetes.

But the police were savvy to their intentions and surrounded them, managing to arrest one while his accomplice escaped.

The suspect and his accoutrements have been sent to the provincial court, while police continue to seek further elements of his criminal network.
