Four police officers in Myanmar’s Rakhine State have been arrested after being caught with a large haul of methamphetamine pills, which they had seized from a Buddhist monk.
The law enforcement officers had confiscated around 120,000 of the yaba pills from a local monk, but suspicions were raised after half of the drugs went missing.
The Irrawaddy reported that the Maungdaw Township court found the local police chief and three other officers had taken around 60,000 of the pills to sell themselves, instead of delivering them to the evidence room.
