Three armed robbery suspects arrested

Two men and a woman were arrested yesterday in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district for allegedly robbing a house in Prey Veng last month and escaping with $15,000, 50 million riel ($12,500), gold and silver jewellery, and cellphone cards.

The group was armed and fired four shots, but no one was injured, said Phnom Penh municipal deputy police chief Choun Narin. Provincial police, who had been searching for the three since the robbery, partnered with Phnom Penh police to make the arrest, he added. “The suspects have been handed over to Prey Veng provincial police,” he said.

“We will detain them and prepare the case and then send them to provincial court to be charged,” said Yu Chun, Prey Veng crime department police chief. Por Sen Chey district police said they seized two AK-47 rifles, ammunition and a motorbike as evidence at the scene of the arrest yesterday.
