Two of them are suspected of selling methamphetamine to their acquaintances in the Gimhae area in South Gyeongsang Province.

Ten are suspected of repeat injections of the drug from last November until recently.

Another three are suspected of growing cannabis on a hill in Gimhae, and smoking it.

“We were able to arrest them one after another by looking into the middleman’s phone records and bank statements,” police said.

“We have detained the sellers and repeat meth users.”
