Man questioning value of hiring security guards

Man questioning value of hiring security guards

A security guard was nabbed on Tuesday in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district after he stole his employer’s car and pawned it for $5,000. The 31-year-old allegedly made off with the vehicle after the man whose house he was watching had gone to bed.

When the homeowner found his car missing, he called the guard only to be told it had been pawned to pay off debts. By the time cops caught up with the thief, most of the money had already been spent. NOKORWAT
