Thais arrest Cambodian with 6,000 yama tablets

THAI authorities have arrested a Cambodian national allegedly found in possession of 6,000 tablets of methamphetamine, or yama, and 100 grams of crystal meth, a Cambodian border official said yesterday. The 24-year-old suspect reportedly said a man he met in Poipet had promised him 10,000 Baht (US$332) to carry the drugs. “We have hundreds of Cambodians arrested by Thai authorities in drug cases,” said Lim Tech, deputy chief of the Cambodia-Thailand relations office at Poipet. “They are tried without the knowledge of Cambodian authorities.”
