Crooks Crack Safe and Scoot with 50k

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Crooks Crack Safe and Scoot with 50k

Post by Mishmash »

2 Unidentified Crooks slipped the net and made a clean getaway with 50k after crudely cracking a 'safe' (no pun intended) at a factory in Takmao.

Police recovered a monkey wrench and a screwdriver close to the scene, but the masks and helmets worn by the perps fooled the AI Facial Recognition Surveillance System.

I reckon they've done that before...

That safe seems to be made of pressed steel outer with a filling of what? Cement? Perhaps to give it the feel of being solid while actually being a glorified tin can.

it looks like mine , ...
... cement ? .. it must be to make it heavy and kinda fire proof , and meant to keep your kids and houseguests out of it
Not the nieghbors or prowling crooks when you’re not at home ... unless you have a good neighbor in earshot
But I’m not going to try opening mine with a potato I saw here about the blind guy troll at raffles
even tho I don’t doubt it probly can be done
Was under $200 - and figger it’s probly worth that much to me so far

Yeah Doc...

This is the third or fourth similar heist this year with a highly similar MO.

(Actually the boss of RX Block that got screwed is a friend of mine (145k gone) but that was an inside job))

Perhaps Oceans Eleven ARE here...

The Safe??? make looks like Century with the inevitable "Chinese Warranty" label and the completely Fraudulent BOOIL Stick-on label and the Model number BS/T750 - completely made up shite... Chinese Rip Off of a well-known Korean brand

A Corned Beef tin when you've lost the key is tougher to crack.

They should have saved some money on the safe and maybe just used this...

I bet the victims are saying, '' Thank Buddha we kept the other $100 k hidden under the mattress ''

No-one ever looks there.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Except my ex-KGB Khmer wife :ROFL:

She can spot a foreign hair in the house from fucking Prey Veng.

Mine too.

Although my missus prefers gold, she doesn't like bits of paper otherwise known as banknotes.

Remember Zimbabwe - suddenly a trillion bought you a tin of beans.

And when those ATMs malfunction or run out of dough it's a right pain in the butt.

ABA is a great Bank!!
