Man gunning for moto’s return lies to authorities

Man gunning for moto’s return lies to authorities

A Poipet town man who wanted to spur police to investigate the theft of his moto succeeded all too well.

The man allegedly told cops he had been robbed at gunpoint by a group of suspects, thinking the gravity of the crime would inspire quicker action.

Sure enough, police launched themselves into the investigation, only to find that the moto had actually been stolen when the man forgot to lock it while having dinner with his mum.

Police told the man it was his own fault the bike was gone, but said they’d keep looking for it nonetheless.
