Astring of burglaries targeting the homes of foreign residents in Phnom Penh and

Siem Reap has prompted warnings against a "false sense of security" among

expatriates in Cambodia. Many of the break-ins have occurred around urban construction

zones, said Chris Berger, managing director of security firm MPA International. With

the urban development boom underway in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, Berger says many

low-paid construction workers are supplementing their incomes with petty crime.
