No such thing as honour among thieves, it seems

Two teenagers, both 17, were arrested when one gave up his accomplice after they allegedly stole a motorbike from a worker at a rubber plantation in Tbong Khmum’s Memot district on Saturday.

The owner heard the sound of his bike’s engine, but unable to catch them on foot, requested help from the police.

The authorities subsequently apprehended one of the suspects, who quickly confessed and betrayed his accomplice, who was arrested the same day.

The bike was returned to its rightful owner.
