Loud safe heist fails to rouse security guards

A group of burglars made off with thousands of dollars from a factory in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district thanks to the – perhaps suspicious – inattentiveness of security guards in the wee hours yesterday.

A worker arrived at the factory in the morning to find the safe stolen and place ransacked. Security footage shows the robbers breaking in through the back door.

The fact the factory’s security guards were unaware of the ruckus taking place inside raised suspicions, but police said they know who the robbers were and are seeking their arrest.
