Police tip-off spells death of a drug salesman’s job

An alleged drug dealer’s string of good luck came to an end on Monday in Banteay Meanchey’s Mongkol Borei district. Police said they received a tip-off that the teenage salesman had been delivering drugs for over a year, and stopped him on his way to a village.

A quick search turned up a few packets of drugs, which he confessed to selling, saying he bought them through another dealer about whom he knew very little beyond a phone number. Cops confiscated his phone and packed him off to court. DEUM AMPIL
