Flashy Frenchman funds motodop’s party lifestyle

A bling-tonting Frenchman became the unsuspecting backer of a wild karaoke and night club escapade.

During a Friday outing around Battambang town, the decked-out Frenchman had his $500 necklace stolen by a 22-year-old sticky-fingered moto driver.

Undervaluing the prize, the thief’s accomplice sold the score for $250. When police caught the driver the next day, he admitted he spent all the money partying, and confessed to 11 other robberies. Rasmei Kampuchea
