We are family, try to steal a bike and you’ll see

Although Cambodia might not have the kind of “neighbourhood watch” system that some Westerners are familiar with, it turns out that family networks can be just as helpful, even across provinces.

On Wednesday, a 24-year-old was arrested in Kampong Speu after stealing a motorbike in Siem Reap and driving back to his home province.

He broke down on the side of the road and, miraculously, a relative of the moto owner happened to see the bike, which he knew had gone missing. His tip to police led to the suspect’s arrest. KOH SANTEPHEAP
