Four-week drug binge ends for high builders

It's not uncommon for someone to unwind with a drink after work, but a handful of builders in Poipet town were arrested on Saturday night for allegedly turning to the meth pipe instead.

Police said they were patrolling a makeshift camp for workers at a construction site when they came upon five men in possession of a package of meth and smoking gear.

Police arrested the quintet – who reportedly confessed to having been taking meth for over a month – and sent them to court.
