Group questioned about laundry list of crimes

A samurai sword, axes and cleavers were among weapons seized by police when they arrested five hoodlums in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district on Friday, after reports of disorderly and aggressive behaviour.

Cops raided a dump site where the group was allegedly dealing drugs, with small packets of meth and drug paraphernalia also among the items confiscated. The group – which police say was involved in bag snatchings and other petty crime – was taken in for questioning. KOH SANTEPHEAP
