Thief’s next exercises sure to be in prison yard

Everyone, it seems, got a workout on Wednesday when cops tracked down a thief who zoomed off with an athlete’s motorbike while he was at the gym in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district.

The victim reported to police that the suspect had grabbed his bag – with the scooter’s key inside – while he was working out. Thankfully, an iPhone with a tracking app was also in the bag.

Armed with GPS and an image of the man from CCTV, cops zeroed in at a nearby restaurant where the culprit confessed, was cuffed and then carted off for charges.
