Moto thief snared eight months after crime

Moto thief snared eight months after crime

Cops in Siem Riep registered an unlikely score this week, after recovering a moto stolen months ago in Kampong Cham.

Officers in the tourist hotspot apparently came upon the bike and ran it through a rarely heard of nationwide database of stolen motos.

Not only were they able to return the vehicle to the owner who lost it back in December, but the 23-year-old man caught riding it turned out to be the thief, who had been in Siem Reap since committing the crime.
