Banteay Meanchey: On July 26, 2018, at 11 pm, a 60 year old Thai man, Yang Chongkao, was arrested after stealing a phone at 5 Stars Casino in Poipet city, Banteay Meanchey.

The General lieutenant, Noun Ninarou, said that following a complaint from Ngeuk Chenda, 34, the police went to arrest the suspect at the casino. The victim said that the suspect stole his phone while it was charging and ran off with it. When he saw the theft, the victim screamed for help, and the thief was apprehended. The victim then reported the case to the police, who arrested the suspect.

After the arrest, the Thai suspect confessed that he has been living around the casino for about 5 years and that he has lost all his money there. Sometimes he would steal from the customers at the casino to get some money for gambling, and also to pay for his medicine because he is a sick man.

The police have been preparing the case to submit to court.
