Trying to jimmy gets car heisters into jam

Two men were arrested in Phnom Penh’s Dangkor district after a vigilant neighbour spotted them allegedly trying to jimmy the lock on a local’s car on Sunday.

Police said the neighbour noticed two rather burly-looking gentlemen standing near the car, but assuming they were the owner’s relatives, thought nothing of it.

A few minutes later, however, the neighbour spied the same two men using a piece of metal to try to unlock the car’s door. He raised the alarm, the victim saw the men, and police arrived on the scene to haul the pair away. DEUM AMPIL
