Moto thievery is one of the more common ways to make a quick buck in the Kingdom, but pinching an official’s ride can land you in hot water.
A 25-year-old Poipet town man learned this the hard way on Wednesday when he visited his friend, an official at the local commune office, to borrow his bike to visit a sick relative in hospital.
After not getting it back, the victim filed a complaint to the police, who found the suspect hiding out at home. He confessed to pawning the bike and was sent to court. DEUM AMPIL
