It was a routine traffic stop … or it almost was

In a case similar to that often chronicled in the Blotter, Kampong Cham town police yesterday lucked onto a drug bust during routine traffic patrol.

Officers said they were trying to stop two men riding a motorbike without a helmet when the pair unexpectedly sped off.

The cops pursued and stopped the suspects, who had given up their real game by trying to dispose of two packages of yama.

The pair was arrested and confessed to having paid $15 for the hard stuff. KOH SANTEPHEAP
