Teen’s mot-theft plan wilts under cop scrutiny

A 16--year-old on Tuesday learned that crime, in fact, doesn’t pay. Police said the teen allegedly paid three men $615 to help him jack a motorbike from a market in Battambang.

The perpetrator then drove the bike to neighboring Banteay Meanchey to sell it, only to be stopped by police demanding the bike’s documents. Realising he could not prove ownership, the teen quickly turned pale and confessed. Police are now hunting his accomplices. KOH SANTEPHEAP
