Cambodian anti-drug officer busted with meth, marijuana

Cambodian authorities have launched a case against one of their own after a military police officer in charge of an anti-drug squad was allegedly found with narcotics in his car, local media reported on Monday morning (June 8).

Chhun Somethea, head of an anti-drug trafficking office in the south-eastern province of Takeo, was expected to appear in a Phnom Penh court on Monday following his arrest in the capital last week, the Phnom Penh Post reported.

Somethea and Ken Chanry – a woman identified as his “lover” who will also face court – were detained at a petrol station after officers found 2 kilogrammes of methamphetamines in their car.
