Nigerians arrested in Phnom Penh drug raid

Anti-drug officers netted a kilogram of methamphetamine and made seven arrests after raiding a rental house in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district yesterday afternoon.

Ministry of Interior Anti-Drug Department officials busted four Nigerian nationals and three Cambodian citizens for allegedly smuggling the drugs into the Kingdom, according to Interior Ministry drug czar Khieu Saman.

“[The suspects] were arrested when our anti-drug police raided their rental house in Chamkarmon district’s Boeung Tumpon commune this afternoon,” Saman said yesterday.

“Our police officers seized a total of six packages of methamphetamine powder weighing about one kilogram, as well as other drug paraphernalia from their rental house.”
