‘Net sellers’ netted in Battambang drug arrest

The battle against malaria provided the cover for a couple of would-be drug dealers busted on Tuesday in Mondulkiri. Police said the two men had travelled up from Phnom Penh with a batch of yama tucked away inside a stack of mosquito nets they purportedly wanted to sell.

The ruse was up, however, when patrolling cops stopped them and found six drug packets among the nets. The duo, 20 and 32, tried to escape on their moto but were quickly apprehended. NOKORWAT
