UPDATE, 7 June 2019
[In another case,] the court yesterday charged and jailed a woman who allegedly trafficked nearly one kilogram of crystal meth in the city centre on Monday.

Major Meas Sarith, an Interior Ministry anti-drug trafficking police officer, identified her as Ma Chanthy, 35, a cosmetics vendor, living at a rental house in Russey Keo district’s Russey Keo commune.

He said the accused was charged with drug possession and drug trafficking and faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted. She is now in prison pending trial.

Maj Sarith noted that Ms Chanthy was arrested by the ministry’s anti-drug police at about 9.30am on Monday in Daun Penh district’s Phsar Thmey I commune after she sold the drugs to an undercover police officer.

“She was a drug trafficker who had been transporting drugs from the Laotian border, in Stung Treng province, for distribution to users in Phnom Penh,” he said. “She was arrested after she sold the drugs to our undercover officer.”

Maj Sarith said that after the arrest, police seized a big package of crystal methamphetamine weighing 999.56 grams and a phone from her.
