Torch shines light on illicit drug dealing

A chase through the streets of Phnom Penh ended predictably for a pair of drug dealers on Saturday.

Police said the duo had been working a dark, quiet corner when officers on patrol spotted them by torch light.

Off they ran, but 15 minutes later they had been cuffed and found with two packages of ya ma and drug paraphernalia.

They confessed they’d been waiting for customers. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
