Sob story actually a rob story in B Meanchey

A tale of woe, a trusting friend, a stolen moto. And so it goes in Banteay Meanchey province, where a man was defrauded of his wheels on Tuesday.

Police said the victim was working at his office job when his purported friend showed up, begging to borrow his moto to visit an ailing resident in hospital.

Touched by the story, he agreed. Days later, with his bike unreturned, he thought better of it and asked police to intervene. Alas, the moto had been sold for $700, a fact discovered by police during his friends’ arrest. DEUM AMPIL
