Cash stash rescued by quick-acting neighbours

A lucky resident in Kampong Cham’s Memot district was able to sound the alarm in time for neighbours to catch a man who’d just made off with $500 cash from his car.

The victim had left the motor outside his house, but forgotten to lock it, and the 29-year-old thief must have thought he’d hit the jackpot when he reached inside and encountered the wad.

But the victim quickly noticed and local residents reacted swiftly to his cries for help. The thief is now due to appear in court.
