10,000 pills seized near Lao border

Authorities in Stung Treng province seized about 10,000 methamphetamine tablets last Saturday from four Cambodian nationals who allegedly smuggled them across the Lao border. The raid was carried out by anti-drug officials and provincial police, and initially netted two female smugglers who were carrying the bulk of the tablets. Later that day, two men were caught with 100 more tablets in Sesan district. Nou Hour, chief of Stung Treng’s anti-drug department, said the men were being held at the provincial prison, while the women were sent to the Ministry of Interior for questioning.
