Thief’s short road from freedom to slammer

A newly released prisoner decided he hadn’t spent quite enough time behind bars when after just one month of freedom he earned himself a one-way ticket back to the slammer.

The 18-year-old saw an opportunity to make some dishonest money when he spotted a moto outside a house in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet district on Sunday.

He quickly stole and tried to sell the vehicle for $1,200. But with no proof of ownership, the suspect was arrested and is now heading for the court. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
