Police crash perps’ party in Stung Treng

Police proved unwelcome party guests at a Stung Treng guesthouse on Tuesday. Acting on a tip-off, police surrounded the guesthouse after hearing that six men inside were partaking in some illegal drug use.

Seemingly not high enough, four of the guests scrambled onto the rooftop to try to escape, but were dissuaded by a few police warning shots.

The two remaining suspects locked the door to prevent police entry, but this merely delayed the inevitable, as police soon stormed the party and arrested them all.
