Keep your friends close, but your moto closer

A boy betrayed his buddy in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district last week, stealing his motorbike and pawning it for $200. The pals were going to visit a third friend with the victim generously offering his future double-crosser a lift.

While the owner of the motorbike was relieving himself, his faux friend relieved him of the moto. The suspect ghosted his victim for four days until they bumped into each other on Saturday.

The owner then confronted his betrayer, detaining him until police arrived.
