Bust yields 1.8k of meth

An undercover anti-drugs operation has led to the detention of a suspect who was charged yesterday with transporting nearly two kilograms of methamphetamine into Stung Treng province.

The 38-year-old suspect was arrested and charged after an anti-drugs officer posing as a buyer fronted a police raid on the suspect’s house in Siam Bok district’s O’Russey Kandal commune on Friday.

Soeung Nol, chief of the Anti-Drug Police Office, said Sok Mengse was charged under Article 40 of the Anti-Drug Law after being caught with 1.8 kilograms of meth, which was allegedly smuggled across the border from Laos.

“He was arrested while he was selling about two kilograms of methamphetamines [ice] to our anti-drugs police agent who was posing as a drug buyer in … Stung Treng province’s Siam Bok district,” he told the Post yesterday.

During the raid on Mengse’s house, another suspect escaped, Nol said.

“Another suspect, who was the owner of the seized drugs, escaped successfully while [police were] raiding the house,” he added.
