A Spanish national and a Cambodian were arrested on drug charges in the early hours yesterday.
Lieutenant Colonel Prak Sovann, a police official attached to the municipal court, identified the two suspects as tourist Omar Rodriguez, 39, and 28-year-old security guard Chan Kimsreng.
“They were arrested while making a drug transaction in [Golden] Sorya Mall,” Sovann said. “Kimsreng was selling drugs to Rodriguez.”
As of press time the duo, who allegedly were in possession of three packets of drugs, were still being questioned at Phnom Penh’s military police headquarters. Neither could be reached for comment.
