No smooth ride for shameless carjackers

Some alleged carjackers in Poipet paid the price for their daytime boosting of a market vendor’s ride on Wednesday.

According to police, the vendor had come out of the market after a day’s work to find his car missing.

A local said he had seen four men drive the car away, but had assumed they were the vehicle’s owners.

The description he provided police, however, turned out to be most effective.

It also didn’t help that three of the alleged thieves were spotted with the stolen car.

Police arrested all three, who reportedly confessed.
