Motorcycle thieves arrested
Three Dala township teens were arrested after allegedly stealing a man’s motorcycle on September 12.
U Thein Naing, who also lives in Dala, was returning home on his Suzuki at around 12:15pm when, at Own Pin Chaung Bridge near Pyaw Bwal Lay village, the three men on two motorcycles stopped him, pushed him off his bike and took the vehicle.
He reported it as a K700,000 loss to authorities, who caught up with the teens – Ko Soe Moe Aung, Ko Nay Lin Aung and Ko Kyaw San Win – in Kawhmu township. They face up to 10 years in prison.
