Blotter celebrates 500th loaned moto scam case

Two drug-hooked teens swapped a friend’s trust for a fix when they pawned a loaned motorbike on Monday.

The Takhmao town pair, ages 20 and 25, asked their pal to borrow his bike on assurances they would return it the next day.

Instead, the pair sold parts of the moto for $30, then pawned the whole thing in order to buy drugs. When the friend didn’t get his bike back, he called police, who were able to arrest just one of the dynamic duo. CEN
