Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice …

A Poipet town motodop on Wednesday learned the hard way that no good deed goes unpunished.

He was giving a man a ride when the passenger pleaded poverty and asked to borrow money.

Perhaps naively, the motodop lent him $20. But no sooner had the man taken the motodop’s phone – ostensibly to get his contact information so he could repay him – the man bolted with both the cash and the phone.

Police gave chase, and the man hid in a nearby house for three hours, but was eventually ferreted out. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
