Dependable wheels underrated, thief finds

Trading in for an upgrade turned out badly for a 42-year-old moto thief. The man was riding in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district when he spotted a bike much newer than his own.

The suspect got just 200 metres away from the scene when he realised his judgment had failed him and the new bike’s chain broke.

While running back to his moto, the man was accosted by the stolen moto’s owner and handed over to police.

The suspect was found to be a newly released thief who landed in prison for moto theft just last year. Koh Santepheap
