Police in Pursat province’s Kandieng district might appear idle to the untrained eye, but their sedentary strategy paid off this week when a witless robber returned to the scene of the crime.
The 27-year-old suspect fled the province in June 2012 after he was accused of stealing a sack full of mobile phones, clothes and other personal items from a villager.
He confessed to police after his arrest on Monday saying he’d returned home thinking police had forgotten all about his ill-gotten loot. He was sent to court. DEUM AMPIL
