Police weren’t going to take this theft lying down

Three infamous Oddar Meanchey thieves found themselves sitting in a holding cell after their latest heist at a furniture shop splintered.

Cracking the front door of the Anlong Veng commune workshop last week, the trio made off with luxury timber and a saw, but were spotted by the owner of the business during their escape.

Police received the report with no surprise; the men were well-known area criminals already under investigation for theft.

The lumber looters were located, and hauled to the station to await charges, and the saw was returned back to its original home.
