Authorities arrest 5 in capital drug raid

Military police said yesterday that at least two men and three women were arrested on drug trafficking charges in Meanchey district’s Chbar Ampov II commune in Phnom Penh.

Sieng Chhay, deputy commander of the Meanchey district military police, said the suspects were arrested during a raid involving military police and officials from the Phnom Penh Municipal Court.

Officers confiscated about one kilogram of methamphetamine pills, 2 million riel (about US$500), a gun and mobile phone, as well as two cars, Sieng Chhay said, adding that the three women arrested worked as servers in a karaoke bar.

“The evidence and suspects were sent to Phnom Penh military police headquarters for further investigation pending criminal charges by the court,” he said.

Pen Roth, deputy municipal police chief in Phnom Penh, said last week that authorties in the capital had arrested more than 300 suspects between January and March this year for drug-related crimes.
