Two thieves in Kratie town found themselves in a sticky situation after getting caught trying to steal oil from their employer.
The bus-driving assistants, both 21, allegedly drained the oil tank of the Capitol Bus they worked for and sold the 20 litres to a taxi driver.
The men confessed to the theft, but said they were forced to extreme measures by salaries too low to live on.
The men are in detention, and police are seeking the driver who bought the oil. Nokorwat
