The lure of a shopping spree made a 23-year-old woman choose fortune over family in Banteay Meanchey province on the weekend.
The woman borrowed a motorbike from her aunt, a 48-year-old vendor, to visit friends. Rather than return it, however, she succumbed to her consumer instincts, pawned it and headed for the market.
But karma was instant for the naughty niece – after buying a few items, she was pickpocketed. Shattered, she returned home, only to be arrested for moto theft on her way. KOH SANTEPHEAP
