Til drugs do us part: Ex drops dime on addict

A 38-year-old man was arrested on Wednesday night in Phnom Penh’s Por Sen Chey district after he smashed his ex-wife’s property when she refused to give him more money to fuel his drug habit.

Despite being divorced for 10 years, the victim told police her ex-husband frequently approached her for money to buy drugs.

When she refused, he lashed out and disrupted her vegetable trade at a local market. Fed up with his repeated requests for cash, she reported him to the police.
