Police catch up with land broker kidnappers

Police catch up with land broker kidnappers

Capital cops worked hand-in-hand with their Oddar Meanchey province brethren in nabbing a pair of kidnappers earlier this week.

Police said the villains had lured a land broker with stories of a Por Sen Chey district plot they were trying to unload.

When he arrived, they produced a K-59 gun and asked him to step into the car.

The 57-year-old victim’s wife then became the negotiator, ultimately paying the duo $6,000 for her husband’s safe return.

The two kidnappers immediately fled but were captured on Sunday, barely a week after their score.
