Six arrested in drug and sex racket

A military police raid on a massage parlour in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district yesterday morning resulted in the arrest of six people for various drug and sex offences.

Khen Sovann, deputy comman­der of the city’s military police, said that the massage parlour was being used as place to sell sex and drugs and that the husband-and-wife owners of the shop, 32-year-old Heng Narun and 34-year-old Chiev Poch, were each charged with operating such a facility.

Three female sex workers were also arrested in the raid and sent to the city’s rehabilitation centre, while four men were arrested and charged with drug use and trafficking.

“Police had searched, followed and investigated these people’s activities and the shop for many days before the raid,” Khen Sovann said.

Police confiscated four packages of methamphetamines and drug paraphernalia in the raid.

The massage parlour’s owners and the four men arrested for drug offences will be sent to the municipal court on Friday.
