Thief tries to augment his haul, gets hauled in

Greed got the best of a quartet of moto thieves who are now behind bars rather than enjoying their ill-gotten gains.

Police said the foursome scoped out a residence in the capital’s Tuol Kork district that rented out its lower level for moto parking, then made their move on Saturday.

After safely secreting away four bikes, one of the group decided it wasn’t quite enough and returned for a fifth. Big mistake.

Neighbours alerted police and, once in custody, the man quickly gave up his cohorts. KOH SANTEPHEAP
