Couple resorts to drug dealing to pay the bills

Supplementing their incomes with narcotics dealing, a Kampong Cham couple were busted by local cops yesterday, who say they had had their eye on the two suspects for some time.

On a night patrol, the cops stopped and searched the pair and found 44 small bags of unspecified drugs.

The husband, a motodop, and wife, a garment worker, said they could not afford to live on their meager incomes and resorted to dealing. Police detained the duo.
