Villagers in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district took it upon themselves to arrest a homeless motorbike thief on Wednesday.
Police said a motodop parked his ride that morning and wandered off to find customers.
Seizing an opportunity, the accused jumped on the ride and sped away. Community spirit prevailed, however, and a horde of incensed villagers gave chase on motorbikes.
The man, promptly caught, confessed that sheer desperation had driven him to steal. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
