Group of youths nabbed after Banteay Meanchey theft

Seven youths were sent to the Banteay Meanchey provincial court on Sunday after they were arrested on Friday for burglary in Thma Puok district.

The provincial police’s crimes bureau head Phoeung Manseng said two of the youths, Korn Thun, 16, and Nuch Vanna, 17, from the district’s Kouk Romiet commune, were also found to be drug addicts.

The arrest followed a complaint from Nhol Sitha, 34, and his wife Thab Dontry, 33, after their shop was broken into on the night of July 31.

The youths allegedly made away with 30,000 baht ($900), four million riel ($1,000) and mobile phone top-up cards worth $800.
