Kilo of meth at border

Stung Treng provincial military police at the Trapaing Kriel Lao border crossing arrested a man and a woman yesterday for allegedly attempting to smuggle a kilogram of methamphetamine into Cambodia from Laos, military police officials said.

Lao suspects Khampho Sisovath, 67, and his alleged accomplice Ath Sonpaseut, 30, were busted with tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of yama in an area that has earned increased scrutiny due to its location on the route in Cambodia from the notorious Golden Triangle drug production region, military police commander Ork Borin said.

“We have seized one net kilogram of drugs from them, which is worth from $40,000 to $50,000,” he said.

“I am checking with the prosecutor, and we will send the suspects and evidence to the provincial military headquarters to prepare documents for submitting them to the court to take legal action.”
