Police bust moto thieves, Expat moto place gets bike back they hadn't reported stolen

EMC Motorbike Rentals in BKK1 posted on FB on the 15th that one of their bikes, a Honda Vision, had been stolen. Four days later they got it back (abeit in a new colour and with different plates). They had not even reported to police that it had been stolen. Police spotted some suspicious dudes in Stung Meanchey and busted them with drugs and stolen motos. Pretty lucky for EMC!
