Kompong Speu police seize marijuana crop

Kampong Speu provincial police seized 834 marijuana plants discovered on a cassava plantation in Phnom Srouch district’s Treng Trayoeng commune on Sunday. Ouk Sophal, deputy chief of provincial police, said yesterday that authorities confiscated about 200 kilograms, including dried leaves, in a remote area of a nine-hectare plot of land, and that the uprooted plants would be sent to provincial court. “Our patrolmen discovered the marijuana plants and uprooted them, leaving the cassava alone,” he said.
