First-time thief makes rookie error at factory

A man was caught on Wednesday trying to abscond with more than 100 bicycle parts taken from the factory where he worked in Svay Rieng, police said.

The man tried to hide the spare parts in a trash can, but a savvy guard noticed that the man taking out the trash that day was not a hired cleaner, and he detained him for the police.

The man allegedly confessed, saying it was the first time. In all, 132 parts were returned. The man was sent to court. NOKORWAT
