BATTAMBANG: Two people were arrested by Battambang provincial authorities in connection to theft, as 26 motorcycles were found in their possession, all of which are suspected to have been stolen and then sold to the two arrested individuals.

Battambang Provincial Police Chief, Lt. Col. Chhoeung Kimsong, said that the police operation took place on Wednesday, 27 April, at two different target locations in Battambang City. He confirmed that a 34-year-old man living in Battambang City, and a 36-year-old woman in Pailin City were arrested in the case.

Currently, the specialized office is building a case to send the two suspects to the Battambang Provincial Court and move forward with legal proceedings.
