Drug suspects moved

Poipet police said they will send 22 people suspected of drug use to the Banteay Meanchey provincial police office today after they were arrested on February 12.

Um Sophal, Popiet town police chief, said yesterday that his officers cooperated with provincial police officers and raided a house in Poipet district’s Kbal Spean village.

He added that during the raid police confiscated drug paraphernalia, adding that the suspects had been connected to numerous robberies as well.

Chan Kosal, deputy provincial police chief, said yesterday that he had not yet received the 22 suspects held in Poipet for drug testing, but they will either face charges or be sent to a drug rehabilitation facility.
