In one of the more unique scams the Blotter has seen in a while, a down-on-his-luck singer was arrested on Monday after returning a friend’s moto a little worse for wear.
Police said the man, who sang at a local restaurant, borrowed his friend’s brand-new bike, then took it to a local chop shop where the parts were stripped and replaced with secondhand ones.
The friend was in the dark until it refused to start and he had a mechanic check it out, revealing the ruse. After police were called in, the crooner quickly confessed. KOH SANTEPHEAP
