A cattle broker proved to be a promise breaker after allegedly cheating a handful of farmers in Pursat’s Krakor district. According to police, the man bought five cows on credit, promising to pay once he had offloaded the cows to other brokers.
But the recompense for the ruminants was not forthcoming. Instead, the broker skipped town with the money, first to Phnom Penh, then to Preah Vihear, then finally to Siem Reap, where he was apprehended on Tuesday and returned to Pursat, where he reportedly confessed. NOKORWAT
