Foreign ‘dealer’ snared in S’ville

A British tourist has been arrested in Sihanoukville on allegations of drug trafficking.

Lieutenant Colonel Tak Sarith, chief of the anti-drug police in Preah Sihanouk province, said Emery Charles William, 48, was detained on Thursday evening in his rented room in Sangkat 3 commune where a police raid allegedly uncovered 12 grams of methamphetamine, three packets of ketamine, 57 tablets, a bottle of marijuana oil and drug scales.

“He is a foreign active drug distributor who had been selling drugs to tourists,” Sarith alleged. William, who could face at least five years in prison, will appear at court today for questioning.
