Man’s fish tale gets him on the hook with cops

A man in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district became entangled in his own web of lies after embellishing the tale of the theft of his moto on Sunday.

Police said the man had come in to report the theft, telling officers he had been robbed of the bike at gunpoint. After a little investigating, however, police noticed some holes in his story.

After police paid him a visit, the man fessed up, saying his moto had simply been stolen off the street, but that he had made up the tale of the gunpoint moto-jacking in hopes of giving police a little extra encouragement. DEUM AMPIL
