Wing mirror thieves caught in the act at Central Market, Phnom Penh

PHNOM PENH
An incident of minor theft and vandalism occurred at 11:00 pm on Monday, June 4, 2018, along Route 53 in front of Central Market, in Sangkat Phsar Thmei III, Khan Daun Penh, Phnom Penh.
Image
Sources at the scene said that before the incident, they saw the two youths on a Honda Dream 125 black plate number Pailin 1A-6227 come to a halt beside a car parked on the sidewalk. Then a security guard noticed that they were removing the wing mirror of the car, so he shouted and ran up to the two thieves. The driver of the motorbike took off in a hurry, leaving his accomplice stranded while someone called the police.
Image
The sorry thief was then escorted from the scene by the cops and taken down to the station. The thief remained in custody while police were waiting to hear from the car owner.

They can be very expensive to replace, so I think they make good money pinching.

Expensive and sometime you don't even find (original) spareparts.

Happy to see them getting busted for once.

SIHANOUKVILLE - Another wing mirror thief was caught in the act by a CCTV camera yesterday. The crime was not premeditated, but the motorcyclist saw the car and took his chance because there was no one around.

Wing mirrors for newer model Tundras cost well over $200 because of the embedded lights and electrical components. They can be stolen in seconds when no one is watching so it isn't surprising that they are being targeted.
