Two Men and a Boy Arrested for Gate-Stealing

Post by CEOCambodiaNews »

Cambodia News (Siem Reap): On October 10, 2019, at 2:10 pm, three suspects were arrested for stealing two gates from a house in Sangkat Svay Dongkom, Siem Reap. The suspects were identified as Vuth Van, a 30-year-old man, Vun Sarath, a 20-year-old man, and an 11-year-old boy. The victim of the theft is identified as Touch Reasey, a 23-year-old man.

Witnesses say that the suspects dismantled the two gates, and they put them on a cart and drove off. The local people saw them stealing the gates, so they called the victim, who reported the case to the police.

After the incident, the police went to detain the suspects. They sent the two adults to the police station for case preparation, and the boy's parents had to post bail to keep him out of jail.

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.

If you allow people to get away with stealing your gates they will probably go further and steal your doors and window frames. It helps if you can speak fluent Khmer while you guide them on how to best fleece you. Otherwise most people are good and honest. Just don't trust the drivers or ferrymen.
Silence, exile, and cunning.
