Kandal police conclude motodop was a lying liar

Kandal police conclude motodop was a lying liar

A motodop was picked up for drug possession in Kandal’s Takhmao town after giving police a less-than-airtight alibi on Tuesday.

According to the man’s account, he was driving home when he came across a group of gangsters brawling in the street.

Spotting a small packet of drugs on the ground, the motodop – for unknown reasons – decided to put it in his pocket and continue on his way.

Cops pulled him over, and after uncovering the illicit substance, were unswayed by his serendipitous tale. The man was hauled downtown and is now facing charges.
