Arrest on the (SIM) cards for phone thief

A mobile phone thief got caught on Tuesday after he gave the stolen phone to his brother without changing the SIM card.

Police said that a soldier in Kandal’s Ang Snuol district put his phone, watch and more than $100 on his bed near the window, where they promptly went missing.

The soldier called his number and reached the thief’s younger brother, who told him where he was.

Police caught the brother, interrogated him and arrested the thief on the same day. The younger brother was released.
