From the penthouse to the jailhouse, all for love

A 21-year-old man decided to begin his bad romance with an expensive guesthouse stay. To get funds for the misadventure, the man borrowed his friend’s motorbike on Tuesday claiming to need to pick up his girlfriend.

Promising to return the wheels in 30 minutes, the thief rode to a pawn broker’s shop where he exchanged the bike for $300 and took off to a Phnom Penh guesthouse, girlfriend in tow. Police arrested the romancer who confessed. He will now have to be content with a court date. Nokorwat
