Dealers bring machetes to a gunfight in S Reap

A pair of Siem Reap drug dealers are facing longer sentences after threatening cops with machetes during their arrest on Saturday.

Police said the two suspicious-looking men had bolted when asked to stop, and drew their machetes when police ran them down on a moto.

Unfortunately for the duo, the police drew guns, and they thought better of their planned attack. The two are now cooling their heels in a jail cell. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
