Members of the drugs investigation directorate at the Jambi Police have arrested four people and seized 43 kilograms of dried marijuana delivered from Aceh to Jambi and Lampung.
The police action was based on a tip-off that there would be a marijuana delivery from Aceh to Jambi. Police made the arrests at the Lorena Express bus counter on Jl. Patimura in Jambi city. Officers checked the bus and arrested the men, allegedly waiting for the package, Polda Jambi spokesman Adj. Sr. Cmr. Kuswahyudi Tresnadi said.
The four have been named as Agung Ari Susanto, 38, Firdaus, 44, Eka Firdaus, 27, and Rio Saputra, 23.
The police first arrested Agung in Jambi city. From him, it was learned that some of the marijuana had been sent to Lampung while the rest had been handed over to Firdaus who had also sold it to Eka.
“The dried marijuana package was delivered in chain to Rio,” Kuswahyudi said on Monday.
The police will charge the four men under the 2009 Narcotics Law, with a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of life imprisonment.
“The case is still under development to uncover any other members of the syndicate,” he said.
