Moonlighting factory worker shown to jail

Breaking into a new line of work didn’t work so well for a garment factory worker who made a foray into drug dealing but was busted by Kandal province police yesterday.

Getting a tip that the seamstress was slinging substances, cops came to search her home.

Sure enough, they found a large bag of the stuff that she admitted to buying for $100 in Phnom Penh with a plan to sell small bags for $12 each.

She was arrested and shown the way to a holding cell downtown.
