Koh Kong police netted a 32-year-old fisherman in Bak Khlang commune on Thursday.

The suspect – an ex-con-cum-fisherman – had previously landed himself in prison for drug offences, and was unable to resist temptation when he decamped from Kampot to work on fishing boats in Koh Kong.

Busted by police mid-binge, the man was arrested. Police confiscated a bag of meth and drugs paraphernalia, and are sending the maritime meth-head to Mondul Seima district police station.
