Police official accused of being a bovine bandit

A police official may find himself on the chopping block after allegedly slaughtering a villager’s cow in Kampong Cham’s Memot district on Friday.

According to police, a cow went missing, only to turn up dead, its carcass stripped to the bone. That very day, the cow’s owner saw a local policeman with a suspiciously large amount of beef.

The official denied any knowledge of the missing cow, but the villager visited the official’s house. There he found a veritable bounty of beef, prompting the official to confess. He was arrested and sent to court. Koh Santepheap
