Phony cops dupe man, confiscate his motorbike

Phony cops dupe man, confiscate his motorbike

Counterfeit capital cops had the last laugh on Sunday when they rode off with a man’s bike after he rear-ended another rider in Choam Chao commune.

Zooming through a filling station and smashing into the scooter, our man thought his troubles were through when he paid compensation for his blunder.

Two men wearing police jackets pulled up, however, and told him to hand over his ride for investigation.

After the pair burnt rubber away from the scene, however, the owner realised the boys in blue had been bogus all along, and headed off to find some legit law enforcement.
