Panicked behaviour tips off police to drug stash

A Kampong Speu man’s failure to keep cool under pressure landed him in hot water on Saturday when he led police straight into an illicit drug den.

Police arrived at a pagoda in Odong district following a complaint from a neighbour that the suspect, 47, was dealing.

When police arrived at the scene, the wanted man was taking a stroll outside. But when he saw the police, he hot-footed it into the pagoda.

Cops followed, finding a stash of drugs allegedly belonging to the suspect. KOH SANTEPHEAP
