The trio boozed and danced, and then the teens asked to borrow the friend’s moto to pick up a fourth partier. When the teens took their sweet time coming back, the friend reported his missing bike.

Police caught the 17-year-old walking around town on Friday, and he admitted the duo pawned the bike for $200 and spent all the money. RASMEI KAMPUCHEA
