Police are working with their counterparts in neighbouring countries to identify additional suspects believed to have been the masterminds behind the trafficking of nearly one hundred kilogrammes of drugs found in Phnom Penh earlier this week, according to the National Police.
General Mok Chito, deputy national police chief, today said the National Police is working with police in neighbouring countries to identify the four masterminds.
Gen Chito said that police investigation revealed the drugs were brought from near the Lao border in Stung Treng province and brought to Phnom Penh to be processed and distributed across the Kingdom.
Joint police forces on Tuesday arrested four Vietnamese nationals at their rented home in Boeng Keng Kang district and seized 10 kilogrammes of methamphetamine.
The arrests led police to raid another rented home in Chbar Ampov district, where they seized nearly 75 kilogrammes of MDMA and various chemicals, but no one was arrested. Police believed that the masterminds fled to neighbouring countries after they heard about the arrests of the four Vietnamese nationals.
