Aircon tuk-tuk thief breezes into custody

An opportunistic thief was feeling decidedly less cool after his arrest for stealing a Phnom Penh air conditioning engineer’s tuk-tuk.

His victim left his vehicle in front of a customer’s house on August 3, but when he emerged from repairing the AC, the tuk tuk was nowhere to be found.

On Saturday, the victim spotted the missing vehicle being driven round town, and so informed the police, who promptly arrested the thief.
