Drug-dealing builder busted with drug stash

A 35-year-old construction worker was arrested Monday for peddling drugs in Preah Sihanouk’s Prey Nub district.

Police said they acted on a tip-off.

When the suspect, from Takeo province, was making a deal at the site police sprung into action and searched him.

Five small packages of yama were found on his person, and he was arrested.

After questioning, the suspect confessed to dealing drugs because his job paid so meagrely.

He has been sent to court.
