It was humiliation after humiliation for a man, 25, in Kratie town on Monday after police caught him lying about how his motorbike was stolen.
Trying to elicit sympathy and avoid embarrassment, the man reported to police that he had been robbed by a group of gun-waving thugs who made off with his bike.
A short investigation revealed that the man had simply forgotten to lock his motorbike before going to dine with his girlfriend. Begrudgingly, police said they would continue looking for the bike thief. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
