Laotian man caught with huge meth cache

Stung Treng provincial court charged a 37-year-old Laotian man with cross-border drug smuggling after police found him with nearly 4,000 methamphetamine pills, officials said yesterday. Nou Hour, chief of the provincial anti-drug trafficking bureau, said Phaeng Torsun Patte was arrested late last week while trying to complete a drug deal, and that police had been investigating him “for months”. He said 3,842 pills were discovered in two large parcels. “The man has been charged since Friday, and has been ordered to serve pretrial detention on the charges of illegal drug trafficking, because we have evidence to prove his guilt,” Nou Hour said. The suspect had “confessed to buying drugs from Laos and selling them in Cambodia”, Nou Hour said.
