Police navigate their way to thief’s spoils

A hard day at the office got a little harder for a man in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district whose moto got briefly boosted from his workplace on Sunday.

Cops said the man had parked his bike and gone inside, only to emerge to find it missing. Luckily, the moto was equipped with a GPS tracker that led authorities to the parking lot of a market.

Just as cops were grilling the attendant, the thief strolled up to retrieve his ill-gotten ride. Police then hauled the suspect down to the station.
