For rustlers, stolen cows just like part of the family

When you’ve stolen a cow, it is, of course, best to keep it in your room for safe keeping. That goes without saying. When you’ve stolen four, the strategy begins to unravel just a bit.

And so it went in Kampong Thom this week, as two middle-aged cattle rustlers earned their way into Blotter lore. Police said the duo first stole two cows from a villager in Prasat Sambor district and brought them back to their flat.

Unsatisfied, they went out the very next day and stole two more, again depositing them in their living quarters. Unfortunately for our heroes, the lowing of the cattle drew the landlord’s attention – and that of the police. NOKORWAT
