Kampot, Cambodia News: A Kampot woman was arrested by police for a theft committed in Kampot city at 4 am, on December 23, 2019.

Prior to the incident, the victim, Reampek, a 40-year-old male from Samrong Kandal village, Preah Sihanouk province, fell asleep after he had been taking care of his pregnant wife at Kampot Hospital's maternity ward. When the exhausted husband woke up, he found that he had been robbed of a gold bracelet and a bag which contained the money for his wife and himself.
The man reported the theft to Kampot police, who showed him some mugshots, where he recognized one of them as a woman who was sitting close by when he fell asleep.
As the woman was known to police, they had no trouble to locate her, and 48-year-old Chhim Phalla was detained in Theay village, Wat Angk south, Banteay Meas district, Kampot province. Police seized the stolen jewelry and the bag with the money from the suspect.

In front of the cops, confronted with the evidence, the suspect admitted that she was the thief.

I wonder why they did not go to Sonja Kill Maternity?
They have a great facility.
Amazing Police work...
Not the brightest thief considering how close the Provincial Police HQ is to the hospital.

The police here can be extremely efficient when they want/need to be. They have eyes and ears everywhere. Don't ever underestimate them, if you have been here a while they will have a file on you. Behave.
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Khmer do not trust western doctors or medicine. Much rather have the skin scratched of their back than antiotics and slap tiger balm on open woulds :facepalm:
