Narcotics bust: Drug lab targeted in Poipet town

Narcotics bust
Three people were arrested and more than 7,000 yama pills seized during a raid on a drug laboratory yesterday in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town. Military police deputy commander Om Phearith said yesterday that the raid was conducted by a collaborative force of military police and provincial court officials and came on the heels of another large-scale bust in Poipet town on Sunday.  Om Phearith identified those arrested as the 38-year-old owner of the residence, his 18-year-old Thai wife and a 36-year-old man. He said police were still counting the number of drugs and other related drug materials confiscated during the raid, a task they would finalise today. The three suspects are being detained at military police headquarters in Banteay Meanchey for questioning and further investigation, he said.
