Police day that they received a report of a stolen motorbike.

On the night of the 23rd August a 21 year old man had said that he had parked his motorbike at the garage of his apartment, Phu Fah Place apartment in Chang Phuek. The next morning it was no longer there and that was when he reported the theft to police.

Police spent the following days investigating his case. Yesterday they had access to cctv footage which showed the young man riding his bike to the nearby 7/11. He was seen walking out holding and eating some food and then walking straight back to his apartment.

This morning the young man went to the police station to apologise to police, saying that he had completely forgotten and the police returned his bike to him.
