Where the buffalo roam . . . and also thieves

A Buffalo trader came away some $2,000 poorer after locking horns with a pair of masked thieves in Kampong Chhnang’s Teuk Phos district on Monday.

Police said the men came to the woman’s house while her family was at a party, pulled out a gun and demanded she gather all the money in the house.

The homeowner played dumb, pretending there was none, prompting the thieves to search her person, where they found the proceeds from the recent sale of four buffalos. Police are now hunting for the suspects. Deum Ampil
