Anti-drug authorities from the Ministry of Interior seized 2,000 methamphetamine pills and arrested three suspects in a Phnom Penh bust over the weekend.
Khieu Saman, director of the ministry‘s anti-drug department, said yesterday the men had been arrested near the Srah Srong restaurant, on National Road 6A in Russei Keo district.
The accused were allegedly carrying in their car a bag of 2,000 pills of “yama”, an amphetamine-type stimulant. Authorities chased the car and fired shots in the air to warn it against fleeing further.
Saman said the suspects had confessed to the crime, but police were still searching for accomplices.
