Two men in hot water after solar panel deal

A purveyor of solar panels in Phnom Penh got burned on Wednesday after making a sale on faith and never getting paid, police said.

The two suspects, aged 19 and 20, allegedly bought the panels in November, promising to pay on February 1.

The date came and went, and when the business owner called to collect, the men told him they would pony up when he transported even more panels to Svay Rieng province, according to police.

Smelling a trap, he filed a complaint with authorities, who pulled off a sting and arrested the two. KOH SANTEPHEAP
