Two men in possession of more than six kilograms of crystal methamphetamine were arrested during a raid on a Tuol Kork district guesthouse on Monday, police said.
Phsar Depot II commune police chief Phat Saran said police raided the Comfort Guesthouse at about 3:30pm based on intelligence from undercover police.
There police found car mechanic Kim Sokhai and unemployed man Sok Lin in possession of six bags of crystal methamphetamine, each weighing approximately 1.1 kilograms, said Saran. Both, he said, were long-known to the police.
“They were arrested [on Monday] about 3:30p, but they have been on police radar for a long time,” Saran said.
Methamphetamine has been Cambodia’s drug of choice since 2005, according to a UN Office on Drugs and Crime report released last year.
