Buddhist wat’s stupa used for drug storage

Four men were arrested yesterday and charged with illegally storing and using drugs in the stupa of a wat in Phnom Penh’s Chbar Ampov district.

Police said two of the suspects, aged 18 and 28, were working as waiters at wedding parties, but the other pair, aged 18 and 30, were unemployed.

Cops confiscated drug paraphernalia including four lighters and rolling papers, as well as a motorbike.
