Common sense is key, as one teacher finds out

An absent-minded primary school teacher was taught a lesson by a local thief for leaving his keys in the ignition of his motorbike outside his home in Kandal’s Ang Snuol district on Monday.

The teacher’s shouting didn’t help apprehend the thief, but a call to the cops did, as local authorities notified the Prek Pnov police in Phnom Penh.
