Police charge three for drug smuggling

BANTEAY Meanchey provincial court yesterday charged three people with drug trafficking offences after they were arrested on Thursday in Thma Puok district’s Kouk Romiet commune trying to smuggle drugs across the Thai-Cambodian border.

Banteay Meanchey provincial deputy police chief Chan Kosal said yesterday that Tith Thai, 39, Chhun Phon, 48, and Sok Heng, 28, were attempting to smuggle yama pills across the border when they were arrested at about 3pm in Banteay Meanrith village.

“These people have been involved with many illegal drug trafficking activities before they were arrested,” said Chan Kosal.

Chan Kosal said that following the arrest, police confiscated a quantity of yama along with other drug-related materials.

“Our concerned authorities are working hard and are deployed at every checkpoint along our provincial borders neighbouring with Thailand.”
