Guards steal clothing from factory


Three security guards were jailed yesterday for stealing trousers from a Phnom Penh garment factory they were paid to protect.
Phnom Penh Municipal Court presiding judge Kim Ratnarin said Vann Sibo, 40, was the mastermind of the thefts. He was sentenced to six years in prison.
Horn Vannak, 32, and Chan Sophal, 28, were sentenced to three years each.  All were charged by the municipal court prosecutor with theft with aggravating circumstances after their arrests in April last year.
Meanchey district police officer Sok Rith said that at midnight on April 26 the three employees of a private security company entered the Ja Ching Garment Factory in Stung Meanchey commune with the intent to steal.
Mr. Rith said they were arrested after the factory owner complained that many clothes had disappeared from the warehouse.
“They were arrested by the police with real evidence after they entered the factory,” he said.
“After their arrests, police confiscated many bags of trousers from them. The stolen trousers were later returned to the factory owner.” Police confiscated a motorbike, a dozen keys, two big pairs of scissors and other related material.
