‘Forgive and forget’ not in police’s repertoire

One man’s trip home for Khmer New Year turned sour on Tuesday, when he was arrested for drug offences committed nearly three years earlier. Police said the man, 32, had absconded from his home in Tbong Khmum province after a raid in August 2012 turned up packages of yama.

Thinking the whole thing had blown over, the man returned, only to find that local cops had a long memory. After being arrested, he confessed to the allegations and now faces a court date on drug-dealing charges. KOH SANTEPHEAP
