Two Chinese nationals have been referred to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court after being arrested on September 4 with nearly 10kg of drugs in Boeung Keng Kang II commune of the capital’s Boeung Keng Kang district.
National Police’s anti-drug department deputy director In Song told The Post on September 8 that the suspects – a 40-year-old man and 36-year-old woman – were arrested at around 5pm in a condominium in the commune.
“We have followed procedure and they will face the law,” he said.
Song added that before the raid and arrest, police had investigated and monitored the case very carefully.
He continued that the operation was executed by municipal police and the specialised anti-drug department and coordinated by municipal court deputy prosecutor Ouk Sopheak.
He said the seized drugs included ecstasy (MDMA), methamphetamines, ketamine and nimetazepam, which had a total weight of 9.973kg.
Chemicals weighing more than 4kg along with two mobile phones and some drug-processing equipment were also confiscated.
