Siem Reap drug bust sends three to court

Fourteen people were arrested Friday in Chambok Haer village in Siem Reap, charged with the use and solicitation of illegal drugs.

Three, accused of dealing, have been sent to court and the 11 others, alleged drug users, to a rehabilitation centre.

Police seized about 20 bags of methamphetamines and related drug paraphernalia. Siem Reap provincial police chief Oum Amara said yesterday that the arrestees have been questioned and are now being kept in custody.

“In the past, we would send the drug consumers to the provincial rehabilitation centre, but now the centre is part of the police station,” he said, adding that lawsuits have already been prepared for the accused dealers.
