One of three suspected drug dealers was arrested in a sting operation Wednesday night in Banteay Meanchey’s Poipet town, police said yesterday.
Thin Sindeth, chief of the provincial anti-drug police office, said Touch Chanthol, 45, had been arrested following a months-long investigation.
“He [Touch Chanthol] was arrested while he was selling drugs to our agents who pretended to be drug buyers,” he said, adding that officers were on the lookout for two accomplices who escaped. Touch Chanthol will be sent to court today.
