Theft victim’s tall tale fails to fool the police

Embellishing a story might score you some points over some drinks, but it doesn’t help get your stolen motorbike back, as a man from Pursat learned this week.

The fibber came to police and spun a yarn about losing his wheels to a pack of gun-wielding thugs.

However some follow up queries by officers quickly established the drama never happened and the motorbike had simply been stolen from the man’s house.

Challenged on his account, the man confessed, saying he thought by inflating the narrative, he would convince police to step up their efforts.
