Laotian men allegedly busted with kilo of meth

Two Laotian men were chased down and arrested yesterday while allegedly carrying almost a kilo of meth across the border into Cambodia’s Stung Treng province.

Nou Hou, provincial anti-drug police chief, said officers had been tracking the suspects, Thau Bunmei Many, 33, and Sang Kang Veongsay, 32, who were apprehended near the border at 7:30am.

“The suspects were hiding the drugs, weighing 999.5 grams, inside their bags. It’s metamphetamine powder,” he said.

He said during the raid in the forest, one suspects tried to flee, but police fired a warning shot, which stopped the man in his tracks.
