The Denpasar Police arrested a foreign national (WNA) from Australia named Aaron Wayne Coyle (44), a methamphetamine narcotics courier.
The arrest of Aaron is a result of the development of the arrest of a foreigner from England named Collum (32) who was arrested first.
Previously, Collum was arrested on Tuesday (September 1) at around 10.45 pm on Jalan Dewi Sri Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali for having methamphetamine and ecstasy.
After Collum’s arrest, officers conducted an investigation at Jalan Nakula Kuta, Badung Regency.
It is suspected that this place is often used as a location for narcotics transactions.
On Wednesday (September 2) at around 00.45 am, officers saw the suspect Aaron in front of his boarding house on Jalan Nakula, Kuta, Badung.
Right at that moment, he was ravaging.
The officers immediately made arrests and searched the suspect.
At the time of the body search, the officers found no evidence.
However, when the officer conducted a search of the suspect’s boarding house, the officer found evidence of a package of crystal methamphetamine with a net weight of 1.23 grams.
“According to the suspect’s statement, the methamphetamine belonged to him, which he bought from Collum by meeting him on the spot.
The suspect played a role as a courier and received a one-time fee (circulated) of Rp 200 thousand, “added Jansen.
He said the suspect had been in Bali since 2020 using a tourist visit visa.
In addition, the suspect’s target is circulating it to fellow foreigners.
The suspect distributed crystal methamphetamine because of economic difficulties.
Jansen said that the arrest of British and Australian citizens was suspected of being part of a narcotics syndicate in Bali.
Now his party will submit it to the Bali Police so that it can be developed.
