A man was taken to the Kandal Provincial Court on Monday for allegedly claiming to be a Military Police officer to defraud three people, a Military Police official said.
Uy Sovanna, chief of the district force’s Criminal Investigation Office, said So Saly, 34, was arrested on Friday in Siem Reap, where he was hiding, after police received reports from three victims on June 4, including his girlfriend.
“He bought a military uniform from [a] Phnom Penh market and told the victims he worked at the Kandal Military Police Station. He borrowed a motorbike and three phones from three victims but then took off,” Sovanna said. Police also found a gun on Saly during the arrest.
