Drug dealing convict goes back to old ways

They say you can never go home again, but one Banteay Meanchey man might soon discover it’s quite easy to head back to the slammer.

The apparently unrepentant ex-con, previously released in 2010, had been an active drug slinger in his village since returning to society, neighbours say.

Police saw him behaving suspiciously on Friday so they stopped him, finding 0.38 grams of methamphetamine.

They took him back to police HQ for further interrogation, concluding that he never gave up his old ways.
