Although Cambodia might not have the kind of “neighbourhood watch” system that some Westerners are familiar with, it turns out that family networks can be just as helpful, even across provinces.

On Wednesday, a 24-year-old was arrested in Kampong Speu after stealing a motorbike in Siem Reap and driving back to his home province.
