Two teens’ tangled web came unravelled on Wednesday when police caught them in a boldfaced lie.
Police in the capital’s Dangkor district said the duo, both 19, had filed a complaint on Monday morning, claiming they had been robbed of their motorbike at gunpoint.
After police visited the scene and found zero evidence on a CCTV camera in the area, the teens finally admitted the truth: They had sold the bike and spent the money, and created the lie so their families wouldn’t find out. Police are still mulling possible charges.
