Police get the one who got away the first time

A capital rubbish collector learned that police don’t toss away a case if one of the suspects gets away, as he had after a phone snatching last week.

Authorities say the 37-year-old escaped from the scene in Tuol Sangke commune on July 24 and left his accomplice to be taken for questioning.

Five days later, however, cops came a-knockin’ to arrest the runaway recycler, confiscate his motorbike and reunite him with his pal before sending them both to court.
