Officer sent to court for factory theft in the capital

A military officer was sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on December 7 after being arrested for prying open the door of a garment factory’s warehouse in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district.

Deputy district police chief Chea Sovann said on December 7 said the 42-year-old suspect was a military officer from Prey Veng province’s Peam Chor district.

“We refer this case [of theft] to court for further action,” he said.

Sovann said that on November 27 the arrest followed a complaint from a factory owner, who claimed to have lost materials worth over $300,000.

The suspect was later arrested in Prey Veng province’s Peam Chor district after a joint investigation.

Provincial deputy police chief Pov Chivi said on December 7 that a car and a K54 pistol were seized as evidence.

“I handed over the suspect to the Por Sen Chey district police because he committed the offence in Phnom Penh. We just cooperated to arrest the suspect,” he said.
