Japanese arrested for smuggling drugs

Recommended Posts

The Ministry of Interior’s Anti-Drug Police Department, in collaboration with the Customs and Excise Office of the Phnom Penh International Airport, on Saturday arrested a 72-year-old Japanese national for carrying and attempting to smuggle nearly 2kg of crystal methamphetamine from Cambodia to Japan. General Mak Chito, deputy National Police, identified the suspect as Nonaka Shunichi who entered the Kingdom as a tourist on February 11.

Around 11pm on Saturday, Shunichi checked in at Phnom Penh International Airport awaiting his flight bound for Aomori, Japan.



Gen Chito said the customs police officer on duty saw the drugs hidden in Shunichi’s luggage as it passed through the scanning machine. The suspect was arrested immediately afterwards. “He was caught carrying drugs at the Phnom Penh International Airport after the customs police inspected his luggage. “Police seized a total of seven bags of crystal methamphetamine, weighing 1,705.85 grams [nearly 2kg]. The drugs were stored in plastics and tucked at the bottom of his luggage,” told Gen Chito to Khmer Times.

Actually, it's pretty sad that an old guy has to resort to becoming a drug mule.
