Suspected of chicanery, trio doesn’t disappoint

Three men learned too late that hanging around a dark, little-trafficked area is no way to avoid suspicious attention.

The 18-, 22- and 25-year-olds were caught trying to sell methamphetamines in Siem Reap town on Friday night.

When spotted by police patrolling the area, the trio tried to flee, but the cops closed the road and confiscated two packages of ya ma as well as drug paraphernalia from the sellers.

The men admitted to selling the drugs and were shipped to court on Saturday. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
