Joyride short-lived for shortsighted teenager

A night or two on the town for one teen in Kandal province began with an innocent request, but ended with a night in a cell. Claiming he needed to go food shopping, the 18-year-old borrowed his neighbour’s moto on Sunday.

The teen returned, empty handed, on Tuesday, after pawning the bike and spending the $200 on party paraphernalia.

His friends, he says, forced him to sell the moto. He was sent to court, and his friends are now wanted for questioning. NOKORWAT
