Wilful ignorance leads to moto buyer’s arrest

A man learned the hard way that if it’s too good to be true, it’s probably a scam. Police in Kampong Cham’s Chamkar Leu district arrested a man on Monday who bought a suspiciously cheap motorcycle.

Police said the motorcycle, lacking any papers, was clearly stolen property and the customer should have filed a complaint.

The man admitted to having inklings that his moto wasn’t genuine, but that the cheap sticker price sealed the deal. The man is now detained and helping police to identify the thief. Koh Santepheap
