A gambler claiming to have his bike stolen on Saturday night was unable to keep a poker face under police interrogation.
The 22-year-old was gambling online on a football match when he hit a losing streak.
He pawned his moto in Tuol Kork for $700 to keep his chances alive, but then continued to lose.
Fearing the wrath of his parents, the punter reported the “theft” of his moto to the cops.
But the police were not fooled and the man confessed. The cops went and collected the vehicle and detained the man.
