A man was sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Tuesday after being arrested for trafficking 7.62kg of methamphetamine in Dangkor district’s Dangkor commune on Sunday.
Anti-Drug department director Loek Vannak said officers are working to identify the suspect’s accomplices.
“We will continue to investigate and search for other suspects. Normally, in drug trafficking cases, he cannot do this alone so there must be more people involved,” he said.
Municipal court spokesman Kuch Kimlong confirmed that the suspect was being questioned by deputy prosecutor Say Nora.
“We received the case already and will provide more information later,” he said.
According to an anti-drug department report, the operation was led by its deputy director Cheav Tola and bureau chief Seng Khunnang. Phnom Penh Municipal Court deputy prosecutor Say Nora was also involved.
District police chief Chim Sitha said his forces were also involved in the operation.
“We worked in cooperation with officials from the anti-drug department on this case,” he said.
