Kien Svay men steal $10K from vendor

Three men accused of cheating a currency exchange vendor out of up to $10,000 were arrested by Kandal province’s Kien Svay district police on Wednesday.

District police chief Prum Samnang told The Post on Thursday that the suspects, two Chinese nationals aged 50 and 25, and a Cambodian, 37, will be transferred to provincial police on Friday.

The victim told police that four men arrived in a black Highlander car and exchanged $10,000 for 40 million riel. One of the suspects asked the victim to return the money to recount it. The man put the money into a black plastic bag but returned a different bag.

The suspects fled in the car. Police detained the three suspects in Koki commune but one Chinese national escaped.
