Three Tuol Kork tuk-tuk thieves foiled by owner

Three Tuol Kork tuk-tuk thieves foiled by owner

The finders-keepers rule didn’t hold up with capital police who arrested three men for stealing a tuk-tuk on Monday.

The culprits claimed they were on the way to visit relatives when they spotted the carriage – keys and all – sitting vacant in front of a house in Tuol Kork district.

The thieving trio were hauled in for charges, and the trolley was driven home.
