Worker bee thief leads cops to hive of villains

A hunt for a stolen moto led police straight to a den of thieves in the wee hours on Saturday in the capital’s Tuol Kork district.

Police said when they tracked down the alleged culprit in a Friday night moto theft, they found him with three cohorts they believed involved in a string of burglaries.

Along with the four suspects, the cops found cash, a gun, a machete and a few packets of ya ma for good measure.

The quartet all confessed to a variety of crimes and have been sent to court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
