Ice slinger failed to learn his lesson in jail

A 29-year-old man in Battambang province is likely experiencing a bit of deja vu after he was arrested for drug dealing after being released from prison for the very same offence only weeks earlier.

Local police said that the man was intercepted again on Friday afternoon – this time in possession of around 40 grams of ‘ice’ as well as a gun, a samurai sword and 40,000 riel.

The suspect admitted having sold the drugs before being sent to prison and not having kicked the habit, and is now awaiting court hearing.
