Pooch-poisoning punks on crime spree in Battambang

The house pets were, unfortunately, the ones who suffered when thieves paid a visit to a home in Battambang province early on Wednesday.

Cops say suspects must have poisoned the two dogs in Sangke district before they climbed in the back window of the place and drove two motorbikes out the front.

Noticing the break-in the next morning, the homeowner alerted the boys in blue, who noted the string of similar incidents that have hit the province recently.
