It’s a tough job market for repeat offenders

An ex-con was caught for grand theft moto in Kampong Cham’s Stung Trang district on Friday.

According to police, the man was previously incarcerated for robbery a few months ago.

This time, he entered a construction site and allegedly stole a bike, but the owner caught him in the act and hollered for help.

His co-workers apprehended the thief and turned him over to police.

The crook confessed, blaming his criminal ways on a tough job market for ex-convicts.

Police sent him to court and he’s been jailed again.
