Man tells tall tale of thievery in Teuk Thla

A 22-year-old man could have a career writing for Hollywood based on what cops believe to be the tall tale he spun, claiming armed robbers made off with his moto in the capital’s Teuk Thla commune yesterday.

The man reported that three people drove up and brandished a gun, threatening to kill him if he called out, and in shock, he handed over the ride then went to file a complaint to the police.

The cynical sleuths, however, think the man may have been conned out of the bike, perhaps dreaming up the armed robbery to salvage his dignity, but began their search for suspects regardless.
