Official’s kin lead police on marketplace chase

An entire Kampong Speu province market got to experience the thrills of a police chase on Friday when two drug suspects were tailed back to their headquarters in Rakar Thom commune.

Spotted by officers dealing near the bazaar, two family members of a local civil servant were pursued through the stalls and back to their home.

A search of the residence was conducted; two baggies of an illicit substance were found and two motorbikes were confiscated, while four members of the kindred crime set were arrested and taken in to face charges.
