Cops worked overtime cracking open a cold case

All the evidence of one October crime has probably been consumed, but that didn’t stop police from nailing the mastermind behind a Kampong Speu province heist that netted 30 cases of beer and eight cases of bottled water.

Cops were called following the drink shop robbery earlier this year and launched an investigation. On Monday, police finally zeroed in on a 39-year-old woman who was brought in for questioning.

She allegedly confessed her crime and fingered four accomplices, and the liquor larcenists were rounded up and given a date in provincial court.
