Alleged addict has the pleasure of being busted

Three men got high but only two got away after police in Kampong Chhnang’s Rolea Ba’ier district busted a group taking drugs on Sunday.

Tipped-off by villagers, officers raided the house where the trio were allegedly consuming methamphetamine. One man, 24, was arrested and reportedly confessed, exclaiming the group did drugs for pleasure, not to cause trouble.
