Two Kampong Cham men and a woman were arrested on Tuesday on allegations of dealing meth, police said yesterday.
Pak Cheat, provincial police chief, identified the suspects as Yon Hearb, 31, Ek Borie, 18, and Sroy Cheng, 65, who owns the house in O’Svay commune where the suspects were arrested.
The trio are accused of dealing drugs as well as providing a safe haven for drug users, Cheat said, adding that they will be sent to court to be charged today. “They were accused of being drug dealers, and they were accused of providing a place for drug consumers.
We have no authority to charge them but, based on the evidence, they are drug dealers,” he said.
Twenty small packets of yama were seized during the raid on the Kampong Siem district house, along with drug paraphernalia. According to Cheat, the group admitted to owning the packs of drugs and said they had been purchased from a middleman.
