Married couple trades wedding rings for cuffs

A young married couple doesn’t have much of a honeymoon to look forward to after their arrest on Tuesday.

Police said the duo, 19 and 18, were part of a group that broke into a home in the capital’s Tuol Kork district at about 4am and stole five motorbikes.

While their three accomplices are still on the lam, police, acting on the homeowner’s complaint, found the wannabe Bonnie and Clyde at a guesthouse along with two of the stolen motos.

The husband confessed, trying to shield his wife from blame, but both were arrested. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
