Armed robbers arrested

Police arrested three men armed with AK-47 rifles on suspicion of committing multiple robberies throughout Phnom Penh. Dangkor deputy district police chief Choup Sokheng said the three men were arrested on Saturday in Dangkor’s Prey Veng commune, and that two of the rifles had been confiscated as evidence. “They have confessed only to one robbery, when they robbed an Islamic beef vendor on Independence Day, stealing roughly 5 million riels (US$1,231) and some jewellery,” he said. “We don’t believe they have only committed one robbery.” He added that police were still searching for three more suspects.
