Moto thief runs out of steam before escaping

A hapless alleged thief in Kandal’s Sa’ang district walked right into the hands of police after the moto he attempted to steal ran out of gas on Wednesday.

According to police, a woman had gone to look for firewood in the forest, parking her moto about 100 metres away. She looked up just in time to see a man making off with her bike.

Unfortunately for the thief, however, the bike ran out of gas and sputtered to a stop just outside the forest, making it that much easier for police to nab him. NOKORWAT
