Seven people were arrested in the capital during a joint drug bust in Tuol Kork district’s Teuk La’ak 1 commune yesterday. The joint bust with Tuol Kork district police was planned after officers from Por Sen Chey district arrested two suspects for dealing drugs.

The three-hour drug bust led to the arrest of seven people and the confiscation of, among other things, drug paraphernalia,  a packet of methamphetamines and marijuana, a shot gun, a car and a laptop.
