It's apparently a buyer’s market in the world of stolen motorbikes, as evidenced by a man who was arrested for stealing one in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet city and taking it all the way to Battambang to try selling it.

Getting a report about the theft on Sunday, cops put out the call in the surrounding area. Sure enough, their man was picked up the next day nearly 70 kilometres away in Sampov Loun district.

The suspect and bike were shipped back to the border town and the former was booked while the latter was given back to its owner.
