A 35-year-old Russian woman was charged yesterday by Preah Sihanouk Provincial Court for trafficking 16 packages of crystal methamphetamine.

Provincial anti-drugs police officer Chum Sokunthy said Yuliya Vasilyeva was an active drug distributor who brought drugs for sale to foreign tourists at nightclubs or beaches.

She was arrested after police raided her rented house on Tuesday evening.

Ms Vasilyeva, who stayed at a rented house in Sihanoukville, was charged with drug possession and trafficking.

Mr Sokunthy said: “After the raid and her arrest, police seized 16 packages of crystal methamphetamine, four mobile phones, seven Russian passports, a drug scale and other related drug materials from her.”

Ms Vasilyeva was being questioned yesterday by the investigative judge. She will be sent to be detained in prison today.
