Cambodia Breaking News (Phnom Penh): According to the Phnom Penh spokesman,in the early hours of this morning at around 2am, June 8, 2019, Mr. Sor Thet, director of Phnom Penh police, coordinated by the Phnom Penh court prosecutor, led a raid on Luxurious Club, looking for drugs. 400 people people were detained by police and taken into custody at the club, located on street 214/63, Sangkat Beung Rang, Khan Don Penh, Phnom Penh.

Luxurious Club has received a temporary closure order by the authorities, and will remain shut down until further notice after drugs were discovered on the premises. 400 customers at the nightclub, who were Chinese, Cambodian and Vietnamese nationals, were sent to the police station for questioning about drug trafficking.
A little over a week ago, on 28 May, a woman was shot in the thigh by the son of a high-ranking official outside Luxurious Club. The shooter is being held in detention, and this massive drug raid a week later may or may not be a coincidence.

This is the club where the girl was shot outside. You might remember it because the perpetrator was turned in by his own mother.

Just like the case with the 9 glocks CEO news displays total ignorance of case correlation. You guys fail to keep track of what's what. You need to work on that and stop spamming the forum with a new thread every time there is a new lead for an existing case.

It's because you don't live in Cambodia and you have no idea unless people who live here tell you. You are displaying total ignorance of Phnom Penh geography. Open a fucking map and read the news you post once in a while.

[Admin Edit: No idea what you are ranting and raving about, but your continued crazy aggressiveness is not needed here, so take a week off. Thanks.]

Yes, that was already mentioned in the OP CEO News, with a link to the incident where the woman was shot and the son of a high-ranking official was arrested. What is your point ?
If you have further information, then please post it.

Nearly 100 test positive for drugs in Phnom Penh nightclub raid
Nearly 100 people who were arrested during Saturday’s crackdown at a nightclub in the capital have tested positive for drug use, police said yesterday.

General Meas Vyrith, National Authority for Combating Drugs secretary-general, said those who tested positive included Cambodians and foreign nationals.

At about 2am on Saturday, municipal police raided the Luxurious nightclub in Daun Penh district and arrested 408 people, including 187 women. Police also seized drugs at the premises.

The suspects were transported in buses to the municipal police station and the club was temporarily shuttered.

Gen Vyrith noted that the raid was carried out after police gathered sufficient proof that the club was a drug den.

“Five months ago, our police received reports from parents of young patrons that drugs were being distributed at the club,” he said. “We then began our investigation and gathered enough evidence before we raided it.”

Lieutenant General Sar Thet, municipal police chief, yesterday said police have identified the club owner as a Vietnamese national and are seeking an arrest warrant from the court.

“We are now looking for the owner who has gone into hiding,” he said. “On Saturday, we also released about 100 patrons, mostly young people, who tested negative for drug use and who signed a contract promising to stay away from drugs.”

Lt Gen Thet noted that among the 408 people arrested, more than half were Chinese, Vietnamese, Singaporean or Malaysian nationals.

In the afternoon of June 10, 2019, Phnom Penh Police Chief has been conducting urine tests on 408 people involved in the drug raid on the "LUXURIOUS" nightclub.
According to General Sarate, the Phnom Penh municipal police chief, on June 10, 2019, more than 300 people who are not involved in the crime will be released.

Of the 408 people detained, there were 121 Chinese, 211 Cambodian, 70 Vietnamese and 6 Malaysians.

As a result of the crackdown in the club, more than one batch of powder has been discovered, some of which was discovered on customers at the club by body search, and some of which was seized in a cafe room.

Police say the club's boss is a Chinese-Vietnamese who has escaped.

Last week's shooting incident at the club involving a jealous boyfriend may have triggered the police action, but the raid on the nightclub had already been planned for some months, according to General Meas Vyrith, secretary-general of the National Authority for Combating Drugs :
“Five months ago, our police received reports from parents of young patrons that drugs were being distributed at the club,” he said. “We then began our investigation and gathered enough evidence before we raided it.”
