Busted before, busted again in Battambang

A sizeable hole opened up in Battambang’s drug market this weekend after a repeat offending trafficker was arrested in the market of the town’s Sampov Loun district.

Police say the 28-year-old had been a long-standing subject of complaints, but it was only through locals’ identification that they were finally able to intercept the suspect when he was doing the rounds on Saturday.

After a failed flight, police uncovered 27 packets of illegal substances in his pockets – he confessed to dealing and was sent to court.
