Dangling keys prove to be readymade jailbait

It's hard out there for an ex-con, as evidenced by a man in the capital’s Dangkor district on Friday.

Police said the alleged thief spotted a woman’s moto with its keys dangling from the ignition. Unable to resist, the recidivist sped off, only to be arrested later.
