Shopkeeper busted for distributing narcotics

Drug dealers posing as grocers is a criminal trend not limited to Battambang, if the actions of one Phnom Penh resident are anything to go by.

Acting on a tip-off from suspicious neighbours that the suspect had a sideline in small-scale drug distribution, police raided the rooms of one Russey Keo grocer on Wednesday.

In her room the police found 14 bags of narcotics and decided to detain her. She is now at the police station undergoing questioning.
