Three Kampong Speu province thieves found themselves in a bit of a pickle while trying to rob a man who was on his way to buy some vegetables.
Claiming he was headed to a market yesterday in Samrong Tong district, the 28-year-old said he was stopped on the way and threatened by some punks with a gun.
The motorbike’s key was handed over but the men were unable to start it. Nearby officers heard the shouts for help and apprehended the blundering baddies who were also found carrying meth.
The trio was taken to the station for their triple helping of charges.
