Four Takeo men are facing a sticky legal situation after being busted for stealing more than 200 litres of tar meant for a construction project.
Police said the men decided to take advantage of repair work being done on National Road 3 by simply driving up in a truck at night and taking what they liked.
Unfortunately for them, an engineer working on the project saw what was happening and raised the alarm. As workers converged on the thieves, only one was caught, though police are hunting for his accomplices. CEN
