Police arrested four Nigerian men and a Cambodian on Tuesday afternoon on suspicion of drug trafficking in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district, police said yesterday.

Trous Sokchea, chief of the research police office at the Ministry of Interior’s Anti-Drug Police Department, said that the men were arrested by Ministry of Interior police while purchasing drugs in a rented house in Phsar Doeum Thkov commune.

At the house, police seized six packages of metham-phetamine powder, a package of dried marijuana and a number of packing materials and equipment that could be used to smoke drugs, he said.
