Little white lie found out by boys in blue

Little white lie found out by boys in blue

Two teens’ tangled web came unravelled on Wednesday when police caught them in a boldfaced lie.

Police in the capital’s Dangkor district said the duo, both 19, had filed a complaint on Monday morning, claiming they had been robbed of their motorbike at gunpoint.

After police visited the scene and found zero evidence on a CCTV camera in the area, the teens finally admitted the truth: They had sold the bike and spent the money, and created the lie so their families wouldn’t find out. Police are still mulling possible charges.
