Not-so-smooth criminal busted a day after theft

The case of the missing moto, cracked in the space of hours, isn’t likely bound for the annals of capital crime.

Police said the bike’s disappearance occurred on Friday when its owner locked it away as normal before retiring for the night.

Hours later, the suspect, a 28-year-old neighbour, broke in and made off with the moto, which soon netted him $300.

But when the victim confronted him the next morning in the company of police, he cracked under the pressure and fled, leaving little doubt to his guilt. He confessed after capture. KOH SANTEPHEAP
