Driver drives off with boss’s boss vehicle

Police in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district arrested a 46-year-old man for allegedly stealing his boss’s car last week.

The suspect, who was the victim’s driver, had driven his boss from Kampong Thom to Siem Reap in search of spare parts for his car.

When they arrived at an auto shop in Siem Reap, the boss stepped out of his car and the driver took off.

However, back in Phnom Penh on Tuesday, the victim spotted his driver behind the wheel of his Nissan Navara and immediately alerted the cops who later arrested the man.
