Drug bust nets nine suspects

Nine suspects were sent to Banteay Meanchey provincial court yesterday in connection with drug trafficking and drug abuse charges in Poipet town, according to military police.

Deputy Military Police Commander Om Phearith said that police confiscated 161 small packages of methamphetamine, 146 pills of yama and other drug paraphernalia from the suspects, during a police raid on a residence in Kbal Spean village on Sunday.

“I think that this is a big crackdown on drug trafficking by our provincial authorities early in the year. We are now working actively in researching and investigating those who are behind this drug
site,” he said.
