Wat Phnom loiterer no midnight tourist: cops

Selling drugs at Wat Phnom? We know it’s hard to believe, but apparently the occasional bit of vice does, in fact, go down at the capital landmark.

Police said the latest incident came Tuesday night, when they spotted a suspicious-looking man loitering in the park.

Walking up to investigate, the man took off in a sprint, confirming their suspicions. After a brief chase, police detained the man and found seven small packages of drugs he admitted were for sale. KOH SANTEPHEAP
