Bridal figurines prolong happy union of man, cell

A Vietnamese national had an additional eight years tacked onto a 25-year sentence after being found guilty of attempting to ship more than 12 kilos of pseudoephedrine – a meth precursor – to Australia last year.

The man, Vann Vay, 46, was in pre-trial detention for the shipment when authorities discovered an additional 38.1 kilos of ketamine in his Phnom Penh condo, which quickly earned him the 25-year sentence he is currently serving. According to police, Vay had attempted to send the drugs to Australia secreted inside plastic bridal figurines. PHNOM PENH POST
