Window of opportunity leads to missing motos

A young man made a nifty escape after police arrested him for the theft of a moto.

The 20-year-old, from Ratanakkiri’s Kon Mom district, was allegedly caught stealing a moto on May 11 and was due to be sent to the provincial court, but he never made it there.

Police are still hunting for the escapee.
