Pair nabbed for dealing drugs in public area

Two suspected drug dealers were arrested early yesterday morning while allegedly engaging in a transaction in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district.

Deputy Chamkarmon district police chief Heang Tharet said the pair were still being questioned by police and had yet to be sent to court.

While Tharet declined to give more details in the ongoing case, a Phsar Doeum Thkov commune police official speaking on the condition of anonymity because he is not authorised to speak to the press said that police also seized 13 small packs of drugs.

“Local authorities were patrolling to ensure safety; when they reached the scene they saw the suspect dealing drugs. They checked his body and found four small packages. Then they captured another one and seized nine small packages from him too,” the officer said.

Both men were arrested on Monivong Boulevard. Police were preparing the case file and would likely send them to court today, he added.
