Japanese Engineer, YUICHI HATAMURA, Busted at Golden Sorya Mall, Phnom Penh

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Still hunting for opium paraphernalia.

I think maybe he's half Thai and can't help it.

I'm wondering what he did to come to the attention of the cops.

There's consistently about a bakers dozen, skeevy looking westerners on the GSM premises at any given time.

A cop could literally walk up to any one of them at random and ask them to empty their pockets and they'd have a case 9 times out of 10.

This is the closest we are likely to get to the truth. Or he didn't share his stash with one of the many tweakers, and they grassed him up??

Since when are the police frisking people for acting suspicious?

Isn't it more likely he tried to enter Pontoon or Heart of Darkness and the security checked his pockets?
