The West Jakarta Police have foiled an attempt to distribute two bags of methamphetamine and ecstasy that were found on a fishing boat in Cilegon, Banten.

Three suspects were arrested during a raid on Nov. 21 that also uncovered dozens of kilograms of methamphetamine and tens of thousands of ecstasy pills, the police’s narcotics unit head Adj. Sr. Comr. Erick Frendiz said on Monday as quoted by tempo.co.

“We are still in the process of developing the case.”

He said the drugs were supposed to get picked up by a courier driving a luxury car and delivered to a distributor in Jakarta. (rai)
