Dino Rossetto, 50, has been charged with dealing in methamphetamine in Cambodia.

 

Local media are reporting NSW man Dino Rossetto had been caught trying to sell 40 grams of crystal methamphetamine to an undercover police officer.

 

Provincial anti-drug police officer Chum Sokunthy said 50-year-old Rossetto was detained in Sihanoukville, a coastal city in Cambodia and the capital city of Sihanoukville Province, according to The Khmer Times.

 

Mr Sokunthy said police would allege “the suspect was an active drug distributor who often brought drugs for sale to foreign tourists at nightclubs and beaches in Preah Sihanouk provinceâ€.

 

He told The Times: “He was arrested when he brought a package of drugs to our undercover police officer codenamed B4.â€

Dino Rossetto, 50, is originally from Orange, NSW.

 

After his arrest police seized the drugs and other related materials, including scales and drug utensils, from him. A urine test proved positive for drugs.

 

Rossetto has been pictured sitting at a table in handcuffs in front of a set of scales with a large amount of white power on it.

 

His passport is also shown in the photographs and reveals he is originally from Orange, in western New South Wales.

 

Pictures from Rossetto’s local newspaper show him relaxing with friends at cancer fundraiser Relay for Life.

 

Cambodia does not have the death penalty, like some other Asian countries, but if convicted Rossetto faces a lengthy stint behind bars.

An immigration official at Phnom Penh airport, who declined to be named as he is not authorised to comment, said the 37-year-old was preparing to return to Australia via Hong Kong when she was arrested as she was checking in at the airport on Saturday.

 

It followed a tip-off from the Australian Federal Police, which worked with the Cambodian Immigration Department to arrest her.

 

Tran is being questioned by the anti-transnational crimes squad general commissariat of the national police
