Two South Korean tourists were arrested for drug use and possession on Wednesday afternoon at the Poipet international Border Checkpoint in Banteay Meanchey province.

Poipet police chief Thin Sindeth identified the suspects as Cho Hwahyung, 57, and Ku Cheol Seon, 40.

“They were casino gamblers. They were arrested after police inspected their room at a casino on Wednesday afternoon,” he said. “They were arrested as they were smoking drugs inside their room.”

Police seized one small package of crystal methamphetamine and four tablets of ice as well as other related drug materials from the room.

They have been temporarily detained for further investigation at the provincial anti-drug unit and will appear at the provincial court for questioning today.
