Poor maintenance puts brakes on moto theft

Planning on stealing a motorbike? It’s probably best to make sure it works first. On Tuesday, a man parked his bike outside a Phnom Penh market while he went inside to shop.

A suspect, 43, allegedly tried to steal it by casually walking it away.

Unluckily for him, when he was out of sight and tried to start it, the bike was dead. He was spotted by the owner, who was looking for his bike, and was chased and beaten by him and bystanders.

Police sent him to hospital before sending him to a jail cell. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
