Ancient motorbike theft not swept under the rug

Like elephants, some police never forget. Ten years after a man stole a motorbike from someone in his village, he returned home to visit his ill mother, assuming everyone had forgiven and forgotten.

They hadn’t. No sooner had the man, 31, rolled back into town than the local cop – remembering the thief’s crime – handcuffed him and sent him to court. KOH SANTEPHEAP
