Man feels come-down after cops harsh mellow

A drug den bust on Sunday resulted in the arrest of a 22-year-old man who confessed his drug use was peaceful and recreational, only for police to send him to court anyway.

Svay Anthor commune police in Prey Veng town said they were tipped off by villagers about drug use at an abandoned home.

Police raided it and arrested the yama-consuming suspect while a few men escaped into the nearby forest.

Some powdered substances and drug paraphernalia were confiscated. Police are on the hunt for others.
