Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: Police have cracked down on a gang of eleven motorbike thieves in Phnom Penh. The gang have reportedly stolen 350 motorbikes. 28-year-old drug-addict, Keo Saren, one of the robber gang of eleven, was arrested on August 30,2018, in Sangkat Veal Vong, Phnom Penh.

According to lieutenant Pol Ratana, the suspect confessed that his group has stolen at least 350 motorbikes in Phnom Penh. They had three different ways of robbing people: If it was in a quiet area with no one about, they would manipulate the motorbike start lock with a piece of wire, or the members of the gang would physically threaten the victim and chase them away from the motorbike, or else they would menace the victims at gunpoint to make them give up their vehicle.

On August 30 at 2:47 am, the arrested suspect and his gang robbed a Suzuki Nex from the victim, Srun Sokphalla, on Preah Sihanouk Street. On August 31, the victim filed the complaint to the police, who then arrested the suspect, Keo Saren, at 8 pm that evening. The 10 other suspects ran away to escape and are being sought by Phnom Penh police.

It looks like a match. His T-shirt is very distinctive.

Must have been some sort of gang ritual.
Why else would anyone steal a Suzuki Nex!
