Two alleged thieves in Banteay Meanchey’s Malai district were arrested on Wednesday after reportedly being caught red-handed with the loot from an afternoon’s work.
Police said that the men broke into the home of a woman who had left for a day of trading in Thailand.
When she returned home to find her door ajar and money and jewellery missing, a neighbour told her of the two men – whom he did not dare to stop – and described their faces to police.
Cops tracked the duo down and dragged them off to court. DEUM AMPIL
