Authorities nab seven in Battambang drug bust

Military police in Battambang town on Monday busted a group of teens allegedly slinging meth.

A young man was detained in the street when the cops caught him in the act of delivering a small package of ice to two users.

The happy coincidence led police to a house where four of the suspect’s friends – all aged 16 to 19 – were arrested with weighing scales, a machete, a motorbike and other paraphernalia.

They were sent to court. RAKSMEI KAMPUCHEA
