Moto thief surprised by arresting officers

A 17-year-old security guard in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district was left empty bellied and stranded last week when his 24-year old colleague offered to borrow the teenager’s motorbike to do a food run, only to never return. When the victim complained to police, the thief was lured back to his workplace to pick up documents related to him leaving the job on Friday, only to find police waiting to arrest him. He told cops he’d pawned the $1,350 bike for just $400 and spent all the cash. KOH SANTEPHEAP
