A borrowed moto is a stolen moto in the world of this blotter, and so it was yet again last week in Kampong Chhnang. Asking to borrow the bike to “pick up money from a friend”, the man instead rode all the way to the capital, where he sold it off for $200.
Back in his hometown on Saturday, he was spotted by his victim and tried to flee, only to be caught and held for police. Every penny of the $200, unfortunately, had been blown in a bacchanal of food, booze and karaoke. He awaits a court date. Nokorwat
