Stung Treng police make drug arrest near border

Police in Stung Treng province arrested one Lao national yesterday who had, authorities say, slipped over the border illegally toting nearly a kilogram of methamphetamines.

The suspect was identified as Seang My, 39, Laotian, who was from Phongsaly province in the north, said Nou Hour, director of the anti-drug trafficking office in Stung Treng province.

The suspect was detained at 11:30am after secretly crossing a known immigration corridor in Thala Barivat district’s O’Svay commune. Police found 993 grams of methamphetamine product packed in tape, he said.

“We just finished questioning this evening and we are preparing documents on drug trafficking,” he said.

“After his arrest, we tested him and found drug substances in his body, and anti-drug authorities will send him to Stung Treng provincial court today for legal action,” he said.
