Defiant drug den finally shuttered by PP cops

Recreational drug users at a guesthouse in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district were living the high life until last week, with meth deliveries to the door and an owner who allegedly tried to block police raids on three occasions.

But drug cops broke up a private party there on Friday, barging into the guesthouse and finding a group of young men using their room as a temporary meth den. Police arrested five men aged between 18 and 21 in their room, where they also found two small methamphetamine packages and drug-taking paraphernalia. NOKORWAT
