Cop among seven caught in drug raid

Siem Reap provincial police arrested seven people including a police officer on Friday for allegedly dealing and consuming the meth-based drug known as ice.

A pistol, bullets and drug paraphernalia were seized in Siem Reap district, according to Chhay Rang, director of the provincial anti-drug unit.

Three motorbikes and seven mobile phones were also seized.

“The law makes no exceptions. A policeman did activities against the law and will be punished just as anybody would be,” Nol Rong, deputy police chief at Siem Reap town, said yesterday.

The suspects were arrested after villagers complained numerous times to police about drug activity in the area.

“The local authorities always say they are busy when we call them to come to crack down on the dealers,” said villager Pich Someth, 56.

Samrith Sakhon, deputy provincial prosecutor, said the suspects were charged with dealing and using drugs.
