Three men were arrested in Poipet town on Monday after breaking into a rice mill, police said.
After casing the joint earlier that day, four would-be thieves returned to the rice mill that night to try to break in.
When the group found security guards sleeping, they must have thought it was going to be all too easy.
However, police patrolling the area sighted them, arresting three, while a fourth disappeared into the night. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
