Home decor catches the eye of O Meanchey crook

With no Ikea in sight, a burglar in Oddar Meanchey province decided to rip off a fellow villager’s furnishings before he was nailed by authorities.

The boys in blue got the call on Tuesday that a water pump, some lumber and a bed were missing from an Anlong Veng district home so they began investigating.

Soon they zeroed in on a suspect and brought him in to headquarters to face questioning about the pilfered home appliances.
