Men freed after being arrested over grenades

Police in Pursat province released two men on Wednesday after they were cleared of having anything to do with three grenades that were discovered at a house in Bakan district’s Ta Lou commune.

The two were identified as Yoeun Pov, 26, from Ta Lou commune, and his cousin Than To, 25, from Rumlech commune. District police chief Song Kim Se said the grenades belonged to Pov’s late father, who hid them inside the house without his family’s knowledge.

The unidentified father passed away three years ago. The grenades were discovered after Pov’s mother asked the police to detain the pair who were consuming drugs in the house.
