Party pooper nabs motorcycle of ‘friend’

A man was arrested in Banteay Meanchey province on Tuesday for selling his so-called friend’s moto.

After a party in Poipet district, the 30-year-old suspect asked to borrow his unsuspecting friend’s motorbike, claiming he needed to visit his wife, who he said was in hospital.

But with calls unanswered and no sign of the moto for days, police were called in to find the man. When police came knocking on his door, he confessed. While most friends settle their disputes themselves, this one is now set for the courtroom. DEUM AMPIL
