PHNOM PENH (XINHUA) – Cambodia’s anti-drug police have arrested an American national and his Cambodian accomplice for allegedly trafficking almost 43 kilogrammes of drug, the National Police reported yesterday.
The duo, a 33-year-old American and a 29-year-old Cambodian man, were caught on March 6 at two locations in capital Phnom Penh.
“A total of 42.7 kilogrammes of crystal methamphetamine (ice) was confiscated from them during the raids,” the National Police said.
The Southeast Asian nation has no death sentence for drug traffickers. Under its law, someone found guilty of trafficking over 80 grammes of illicit drugs could be imprisoned for life.
