Indonesian Police Foil Smuggling Of 12 Kg Crystal Meth

JAKARTA, Sept 30 (NNN-ANTARA) – A joint military-police team in Indonesian West Kalimantan district of Sanggau, foiled an attempt to smuggle 12-kilogram crystal methamphetamine and arrested three suspects, in an Indonesia-Malaysia border area, a police officer said.

The contrabands were seized during a joint patrol in the border area in the district, on Monday at 4.00 p.m. local time, the Sanggau District Police’s Chief, Senior Commissioner, Raymond M Masengi, said in a statement on Tuesday.

According to Masengi, the police also seized four motor cycles and detained three suspects identified as Ma, Am, Ri, while another one identified as Os is still on the run.

He pointed out that the joint team thwarted the attempt to smuggle the illicit goods after obtaining information from people who suspected persons who wanted to enter Malaysia through an illegal access.

“With the disclosure of the smuggling attempt, the suspects might belong to drug syndicates of international networks. The suspects might only serve as couriers who send the drugs to dealers,” he said, adding that, the joint team is now chasing fugitive Os.– NNN-ANTARA
