No speedy getaway for thief foiled by gadget

The latest in moto security technology foiled a would-be thief in the capital on Sunday. Police said the man was in town visiting relatives and, being down on his luck, couldn’t resist the impulse when he saw a parked bike with keys in the ignition.

But he didn’t get far. The bike’s owner walked outside as the man pulled away and, with the suspect about 100 metres away, shut the engine off remotely. Our protagonist then jumped off and fled on foot, only to be swarmed by angry villagers and given a sound thrashing. KOH SANTEPHEAP
