Rarely do you see people prying off their own licence plates, so when police came across a man fiddling with a moto in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Monday, they knew something was up.

Initially the man, 21, denied anything was amiss, though after a few hours with officers,he confessed to stealing the moto from a 17-year-old in Preah Vihear province on Friday and driving it to the capital to sell it.

The man, who claimed he was unemployed, has been sent to court.
