One drug bust leads to another in Tuol Kork

Seven people were arrested in the capital during a joint drug bust in Tuol Kork district’s Teuk La’ak 1 commune yesterday. The joint bust with Tuol Kork district police was planned after officers from Por Sen Chey district arrested two suspects for dealing drugs.

The suspects confessed to dealing drugs and told the police the location of their distribution centre in Phnom Penh.

The three-hour drug bust led to the arrest of seven people and the confiscation of, among other things, drug paraphernalia,  a packet of methamphetamines and marijuana, a shot gun, a car and a laptop.
