A 30-year-old man may as well have been born yesterday after falling for the oldest trick in the book in Kandal province’s Sa’ang district on Monday.
Police said the man, accompanied by a friend, drove his moto to a relative’s home where the drinks were flowing.
After a while, the friend asked to borrow the man’s moto to procure more booze.
There were no objections until the so-called friend failed to return, prompting the man to file a police complaint.
Authorities in Phnom Penh apprehended the suspect, who reportedly confessed to selling the moto for $500 and spending the proceeds on karaoke and drugs.
