On the morning of July 25 2017 at 9.30AM the Anti-Drug department of the provincial Military Police sent 4 suspects, the result of 3 different raids on July 24 2017, to the Preah Sihanouk Provincial Court for their (alleged) involvement in dealing illegal drugs.

I'll focus on Coutelas' case and refrain from translating the 2 other raids.

The raid happened on July 24 2017 at 4.40PM in Group 8, Village 6, Sangkat 4, Sihanoukville.
Mr.Coutelas is/was staying at Otres Lodge in Group 8, Village 6, Sangkat 4, Sihanoukville.
(It's not explicitly mentioned that the raid happened in the guest house)

Police confiscated 7.53gr of dried marijuana, a plastic bottle bong, 5 glass pipes, some zip-lock bags, 3 lighters, a mobile phone, a weighing scale and a motorbike.

That looks like a big bag of ice on the right. That bottle bong with the two holes in it is a typical rig used with a couple of straws to smoke ice, I used to see them discarded in obscure corners and bushes in my old neighborhood. The glass pipes are for smoking ice too.

That!

I could be wrong but I think that the plastic bag on the right contains smaller plastic bags. The bag on the left on the other hand...Looks like ice.

I'll have a look at the (Khmer) article again, maybe some of the stuff belongs to one of the other detainees.

To be continued.

Possibly just a detail but the mugshot placards of the 3 others say 'case trafficking/dealing drugs' whereas Mr. Coutelas' placard says 'case drugs'...

The 3 others were caught with:

Chhan Chomreun (3rd from the left): 0.08gr (the picture shows 0.09) of meth (1 small plastic bag).

Ve Vandy (2nd from the left) and Sokh Sreyoon (1st from the left): 0.13gr of meth (3 small plastic bags)

Image

vv Looks like small plastic bags; possibly to package meth.

vv Looks like a little bigger plastic bags; possibly to package marijuana.
