Teen may finally see jail for number plate scam

A 14 -year-old repeat offender may have to pay for his crime, after police in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district caught him stealing licence plates off of cars yesterday.

When arrested, the suspect said he sold the plates for $5 each, because he has no other way to support himself, police said.

Authorities had arrested the suspect three times for the same crime, but previously “educated” him, and told him not to do it again.

This time, police say, he might not be let off the hook.
