A man in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district thought he was one cool cat when he allegedly tried to scam an air-conditioning salesman out of three aircon units on Wednesday.
Police said the man ordered the three units for an apartment but didn’t pay up front. Once they were dropped off, the man immediately sold one.
The next day, when the salesman – who happened to be a cop – came by to check on the installation, he saw the man attempting to make off with the other two.
The suspect tried to escape, but locals chased him down and roughed him up. KOH SANTEPHEAP
