Stretching the truth no good to cops in Kratie

Police in Kratie town said on Wednesday that they arrested a man that had knowingly deceived police by filing a false report.

The suspect reportedly filed a police report saying that he was robbed of his motorbike at gunpoint while riding it one night.

However, when officers began investigating the case, it became clear that the man’s bike was actually stolen while it was parked.

Police then asked him why he felt the need to lie, and the suspect admitted to his misdeed, saying that he thought police would act quicker if they thought he was robbed. NOKORWAT
