Police from the unit confiscated 168 packets of “Ruan Puan” snacks, 51 packets of coconut jam and jelly from traders at the Prek Somrong village, Takhmao commune in Takhmao Town.

Ly Socheat, the Anti-Economic Crime police chief, told The Post yesterday that the importer of the products was identified as Sron Chanthy, 44, who resides in Ktub village, Sampov Poun commune, Koh Thom district.

The court will make a decision on the seized items soon, while the owner is required to sign an agreement not to sell such products in the future, said Socheat.
