No house calls needed for hospital moto thief

An opportunistic thief got a dose of instant karma on Tuesday when he tried to steal a moto left in front of a Kampong Thom town hospital.

Police say the 30-year-old man took the bike shortly after it was left unattended, and unlocked, by a man bringing his family for medical attention.

Hospital staff took no note of the robbery, assuming the suspect was a friend or relative.

The owner had a slightly different reaction on emerging, shouting for police, who managed to track the thief down and arrest him that night.
