An ex-con was caught for grand theft moto in Kampong Cham’s Stung Trang district on Friday.
According to police, the man was previously incarcerated for robbery a few months ago.
This time, he entered a construction site and allegedly stole a bike, but the owner caught him in the act and hollered for help.
His co-workers apprehended the thief and turned him over to police.
The crook confessed, blaming his criminal ways on a tough job market for ex-convicts.
Police sent him to court and he’s been jailed again.
