Moving hot cars from Kandal to Kratie province probably must have seemed like a foolproof plan to a pair of crooks, right up until they were getting cuffed on Wednesday.
Police said the duo had stolen a series of vehicles in Kandal and then made the long drive to unload them.
Acting on complaints from victims, police pieced it together and did the one thing the thieves hadn’t counted on – communicated.
A tip from their Kandal brethren let Kratie police swoop in and arrest the duo, confiscating six cars in the bargain, which victims can reclaim by filing paperwork.
