Bust leads to five arrests

Five men were arrested and charged on Monday in Battambang province, accused of trafficking almost 4,000 methamphetamine pills over the border from Thailand.

The drugs, along with guns and ammunition, were found stashed in a car during a police raid of two villages in Kamrieng district, according to police chief Chhim Kimhong.

“Our police have traced these guys for months. They always buy drugs from Thailand and cross into Kamrieng district; they deliver the drugs very often with their networks,” he said, adding that this haul was a major win for police so early in the year. The suspects are due in court today.
