Claiming they were there only to “repair the bathroom”, three men crept over a few roofs and found their way into an empty house in Kratie town on Tuesday.
Seemingly believing the owners were enjoying a break some distance away, the men told a suspicious neighbour they were handymen.
Their ability to spin a tale, though, was much less a weapon when the owner returned. Police were called and the men are now behind bars. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
