Two Chinese nationals nabbed with 70 kilogrammes of drugs in Cambodia

Two Chinese men have been charged after a massive drug bust in Cambodia’s capital Phnom Penh that netted 70 kilogrammes of narcotics destined for Vietnam.

The 40-year-old and 58-year-old face counts of drug possession and trafficking, according to a Tuesday report by the Khmer Times, which noted the offences carry a potential life sentence.

The pair were detained last week as police raided a property in Phnom Penh. During the operation, officers recovered 52,768 MDMA tablets, 49 kilograms of heroin and 12 kilograms of methamphetamine.
