Security guard shot to death by thieves.

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Mon Nov 07, 2016 10:29 am

Police are continuing to hunt for two suspected thieves who fled into the forest after shooting dead a security guard in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district yesterday afternoon.

According to Choam Chao commune deputy police chief Nho Serey, the pair crossed paths with the security guard after running through the property of an abandoned house in Prey Tea village at about 2pm, following an attempt to steal an undisclosed amount of cash from a Chinese national, who was not injured.

“The security guard just took a look, and the armed robber shot him dead at the site,” said Srey, who said the victim was shot in the torso, but added an examination of the body was still ongoing...

Sometimes it's smarter to be sleeping... he should've stayed in his hammock.

The use of these new methods enabled the officers to fully implement their specialised and finely tuned skills of tried and tested Cambodian policing methodology.

Surprisingly, as of 4:45pm the suspect has still not been apprehended.

Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district is near the airport correct?
If so where would you run into the ''forest''?

If not where in PP would or could you run into a forest?

Why are those buildings abandoned? Airport expansion?

Yes, lol for the "tried and tested Cambodian policing methodology" - a few hammocks missing from the photos, but it's good to see that someone thought to pull out some chairs. :bow:

Best to live next to a big CPP political figure. In the unlikely event a thieve is spotted, modern suppressed machine guns are quickly drawn and used.

Despite their use of the finest technology and having the robbers surrounded, Cambodian police were out-foxed by the two men who managed to escape. It seems likely that the suspects had already left the forest before the police surrounded it.

Police yesterday deployed a camera-equipped drone to inspect a forest where two suspected thieves fled after allegedly killing a military police officer in Por Sen Chey district on Sunday, but were unable to find the suspects.

“The police used a drone and went directly to the forest. The drone was deployed and hovered above the entire forest,” said Choam Chao commune deputy police chief Nho Serey.

“The suspects may have run out [of the forest] after shooting the man before the police arrived, because the police surrounded the forest the whole night from Sunday afternoon to this afternoon but did not come across any suspect.”

According to Serey, the two suspects robbed a Chinese national of $500 and a necklace and then ran through the property of an abandoned house, shooting dead 23-year-old military police officer Yen Rynong – who also worked as a security guard for the house – before fleeing into the forest.

“In the [security] camera [footage], we saw a picture, but the suspects were wearing raincoats, so we can’t see their faces clearly,” he said. “We will continue to look for them.”

The suspected ringleader of the robbery, identified as a Chinese real estate agent, has been arrested, while the two thieves who shot the security guard are still on the run.

Police Name Suspect in Phnom Penh Robbery, Murder
by Kang Sothear | November 14, 2016

Police in Phnom Penh on Sunday identified the suspect they arrested on Wednesday in connection with a November 6 robbery that left an off-duty soldier dead as Chinese real estate agent and ringleader Zhao Jiwey.

Two other robbers shot the soldier, who was moonlighting as a security guard, while fleeing from a mob that gave chase after they stole about $500 from a Pur Senchey district bookstore.

Mr. Zhao told police that he and his accomplices knew that the bookstore owner had recently received a cash transfer from China.
