Nappers caught napping by police in Preah Sihanouk

Nappers caught napping by police in Preah Sihanouk

A victim in Preah Sihanouk province is feeling thankful for his decidedly short kidnapping on Friday night when three suspects held him for an $800,000 ransom.

After tailing the man’s Porsche and nabbing him when he pulled over, the abductors – aged 23 to 26 – rang up the family demanding the staggering sum.

Unfortunately for them, police rapidly zeroed in the following day, arrested them and took them into custody, where they were awaiting extortion charges.
