• Cambodia seizes 1.5 tons of marijuana worth $7M


    PHNOM PENH: Cambodian police on Tuesday showed off a seizure of nearly 1.5 tons of marijuana worth more than $7 million packed into coffee bags, part of an ongoing drug crackdown in the country. General Khieu Samon, head of the interior ministry’s anti-drug office, said 1,487 kilograms of marijuana was seized on Friday in Phnom Penh during raids in which three Cambodians were arrested. “The marijuana was packed into bags of Dao coffee, which was smuggled from neighboring Laos into Cambodia,” he told reporters during a press conference in which officers presented the drug haul, the suspects and seized equipment to the media. Dao is a brand of Laos coffee popular in Cambodia.
