Three Arrested Over Ecstasy Possession

A Vietnamese couple and a Chinese man were arrested Sunday after they were found with more than 300 ecstasy tablets at a guesthouse in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district, police said Wednesday.

The two Vietnamese nationals, aged 29 and 30, and the Chinese national, aged 52, were sent to the Phnom Penh Municipal Court for questioning, said Vann Kosal, deputy police chief of the Ministry of Interior’s anti-drug department.

Mr. Kosal said the trio had been under surveillance since Saturday at the Paris Hotel in Daun Penh’s Srah Chak commune before it was raided.

Each tablet is worth between $6 and $7, Mr. Kosal added.

Ngeng Chhun, bureau chief of the Ministry of Interior’s drug intervention department, said the three would be sent to court today to be charged.
