Four armed robbers burst into a gold and mobile phone shop in Svay Rieng province’s Svay Chrum district on Saturday evening and fired dozens of bullets into the air before making off with a large amount of property, police said.
The men, wielding AK-47s, intimidated the owner and customers before escaping with phones, gold and cash, Svay Chrum district police chief Loek Choeun said yesterday.
Police detained one suspect and are searching for the others.
Two men arrested in relation to the robbery were released after questioning revealed no involvement, Choeun said.
