Indonesian police bust international drug ring

INDONESIAN police have uncovered a drug manufacturing operation scattered in four different locations in Batam city, arrested two Taiwanese suspects and confiscated Rp454 billion ($644 million) worth of the finished product, official said .

National police chief Gen Sutanto told newsmen at Batam’s Hang Nadim Airport that the successful police operation on Saturday night was the result of close cooperation between Indonesian police and the drug enforcement agencies of Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Australia and the United States.

The operation began with a raid on a location in Pluit, Muara Karang in Jakarta, where an Indonesian man was arrested for possession of 49kg of methamphetamine originating from Batam.

In Batam, police found manufacturing tools and 568 litres of liquid methamphetamine, where they also arrested two Taiwanese, Wang Chin I and Tsai Tsai Cheng, and four Indonesians, Jaelani Usman, Darwin Silaban, Syaed Abubakar and Apeng.

These facts again proved that the drug trade always involved international syndicates, Sutanto said, as quoted by Antara news agency.

The drug made in Batam was not only marketed in Indonesia but also in mainland China and Taiwan, said Sutanto.

The police raided four locations in Batam city and at each, found evidence of a large-scale drug making operation.

He said it was found that location one was used to make liquid methamphetamine which would be transported to location two where the precursor drug was stored, while at location three in the middle of a shopping complex, the liquid methamphetamine was processed into crystal form.

It was at location three that police confiscated 150 gallons of methamphetamine or the equivalent of 568kg of “ice crystal” , 34.5kg barium sulphate, 32kg salt, 21.5kg sodium hydroxide and 35 gallons of hydrochloric acid and two luxury cars. Drugs had been dried at Location five.
