String of over 300 thefts pinned on 28-year-old

A 28-year-old man was sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday after he was arrested for committing at least 350 robberies in the capital.

Court spokesperson Ly Sophana said Keo Sarin was still being questioned. “The prosecutor has not finished questioning him yet. He’s involved in more than one case,” he said, adding the questioning would continue on Wednesday.

Sarin and his accomplices last robed a city dweller of a motorbike and other belongings on August 31 in 7 Makara district’s Veal Vong commune. He was arrested the following day.

The Interior Ministry’s penalty department deputy director Pol Ratana said Sarin was armed but never killed his victims.
