Casino carjacker’s world flipped upside down

An opportunistic thief saw his world quite literally upended after stealing a ride at Kampot province’s Prek Chak casino on Tuesday night.

The car’s absent-minded owner had forgotten to lock his car before entering the casino, only to find it missing when he returned.

He promptly alerted the police, who tailed the accelerating car until it overturned about 3 kilometres from the casino.

After extracting the car thief, police began prepping the necessary documents to take legal action.
