In the majority of cases where drugs are found for sale and use you will find cash as the drugs must be paid for .
In this instance we have over 250 persons nominated as users but no mention of the money being found at the location.

Is this why the Chinese were released? Where did the money go?

1 hour ago - BREAKING NEWS
HE orders Interior Ministry to further investigate Rock Centre
Prime Minister HE has ordered the Interior Ministry to further investigate drugs at the Rock Entertainment Centre and hunt those behind distribution at the club.

Speaking at a graduation ceremony in Phnom Penh on Monday, Mr HE said that he was baffled to learn about the drugs bust at Rock Centre next to the state-run Royal University of Law and Economics in Chamkar Mon district, noting that a thorough investigation has to be conducted.

“I am very pleased that our police were able to crack down on it on time. The Interior Ministry must continue working on this and the court must handle the case seriously,” he said. “We must not let such drugs abuse continue to happen.”

Mr HE also called on the authorities to be fearless and arrest the masterminds.

“[Police] must find out who are the masterminds,” he said. “Since we have already had clues and evidence in hand, investigate further to see who are ringleaders.”
