Keys in ignition triggers Pavlovian thief response

A motorbike key left dangling in the vehicle’s ignition must have looked like a sign saying “Rob Me” to a ne’er-do-well in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district yesterday.

Spotting the easy pickings, the suspect swiftly hopped onto the vehicle, started the engine and rode off.

Thankfully, however, the motorbike’s careless owner realised his mistake just in time, spotted the suspect and called out for help.

As luck would have it, police who were passing by managed to arrest the suspect.
