Trio of locks prove no barrier to moto thieves

A home-alone husband fell victim to moto thieves in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district on Tuesday.

The 50-year-old left home for work at 9am, his moto safely secured in his house behind three stout locks.

But on returning home some eight hours later, he found all three locks open, and a conspicuously absent moto.

A witness said he saw two men walking the moto out of his home, but assumed them to be relatives of the victim.
