Drug charges: Court claims suspect had long history

Drug charges
The Stung Treng Provincial Court handed down drug-trafficking charges to a local woman yesterday after she was arrested on Saturday with nearly one kilogram of methamphetamine powder, which she was allegedly attempting to sell, police said.

The provincial anti-drug police chief Nou Hour said yesterday that Say Sreypov, 49, had been charged and detained after a joint sting operation with the Ministry of Interior picked her up in Stung Treng’s Thala Borivat district.

“The suspect is a long-time drug trafficking target, and was tracked for two months,” he said.

According to Hour, Sreypov was arrested with 889.7 grams of powdered methamphetamine in the province’s seventh drug-trafficking case in the first three months of the year.

Deputy Prime Minister and National Authority for Combating Drugs Chairman Ke Kimyan in a speech at the NACD’s national congress last week called for tighter security at border checkpoints to combat the flow of drugs into Cambodia across international boundaries.
