Mork Leang Chhay, 44, a farmer from Kandal province's Sa'ang district, was arrested on Friday evening when police caught him battering the motorbike of 27-year-old Bib Ny with a spade and severely damaging it. The event, which was caused only by the influence of gin, happened in Sa'ang district, while the farmer was seriously drunk.

Two necklaces, a pair of earrings, and a bracelet were taken from 34-year-old Yon Pheap on Thursday night by two thieves who robbed her house in Battambang province's Koas Kralor district. The robbers, who managed to escape safely, were armed with a samurai sword. The marauders needed only one samurai sword to rob the victim because her house was in a very remote area.

Two drug dealers were arrested by Battambang provincial police who raided their houses in on Friday morning in compliance with a provincial court warrant. Twelve yama pills and drug paraphernalia were confiscated. The accused were identified as 53-year-old Chhay Engly and 43-year-old Meth Ly. The suspects said they bought the drugs from Banteay Meanchey province for 14,000 to 15,000 riels (US$3.38 to $3.62) per pill and sold them at 18,000 to 20,000 riels per pill.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested on Wednesday on suspicion of killing a 13-year-old boy in Kampong Speu province's Samraong Tong district. The suspect told police that he had been paid 20,000 riels by two men to kill the victim, Chat Chen. After an investigation, however, police found that Chat Chen had been beaten to death with a wooden stick for cursing the suspect after the suspect's oxen ate his rice.
