Trafficking charges for five in raid

Five men were charged yesterday with smuggling more than half a kilogram of methamphetamine in the capital’s Tuol Kork district last week, a senior police official with an anti-drug unit said.

Major General Sok Chour, spokesman for the Ministry of Interior’s anti-drug police department, said the five men charged were members of a drug-trafficking ring based in Phnom Penh.

“They were arrested while the . . . anti-drug police raided their rental house in Boeng Salang commune last [Friday],” he told the Post yesterday.

There, the police seized about 500 grams of methamphetamine powder, and 4,000 pseudoephedrine meth tablets, known as WY pills. They also confiscated a Toyota Camry.

The five men were sent to the Prey Sar prison to await trial. Neither Top Chhun Long, the prosecutor assigned to the case at Phnom Penh Municipal Court, nor the five suspects could be reached for comment yesterday.
