Drug bust leads to Poipet dental clinic

Military police arrested a man after finding him to be in possession of nearly 2,000 yama pills late on Sunday night outside of a casino in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town. Poipet town military police chief Hom Mut said that after the arrest, the suspect divulged the names of two men who he claimed were large-scale drug traffickers who supplied him. “After police questioned him the suspected admitted he had bought the drugs from two other men. After that, our police immediately went to arrest the two men who worked at a dentistry clinic in Poipet,” Hom Mut said. One of the suspects owned the clinic and the other was a worker. He also said that when police raided the dentistry clinic and arrested the two additional suspects, they confiscated an AK-47 assault rifle, two cars, two knives, drug paraphernalia, and five cell phones. Banteay Meanchey provincial police chief Men Phirum confirmed the three suspects were sent to court yesterday to face charges of drug trafficking.
