Drug suspect hauled in

Kampong Cham provincial police on Tuesday arrested an alleged drug dealer they had been tailing for months and confiscated 42 grape- to golfball-sized packages of methamphetine powder.

According to Chhay Kimson, Kampong Cham police commissioner, dealer Sreng Pho, 33, was arrested in Tbong Khmum district following several warrants for his arrest and months of police investigation.

In the building where they found the meth and arrested Pho, police also found a weighing scale, packing supplies and materials that could be used to smoke drugs.

“The suspect is a long-time drug dealer,” Komson said.

“We are seeking to arrest more of his network.”

Pho, a native of Kandal’s Koh Thom district, has been sent to court for official charges.
