The Jakarta Police narcotics unit recently arrested Adj. First Insp. Dadang Sumantri, an officer of the Sawangan Police in Depok, West Java, over the alleged possession of crystal methamphetamine, the police said over the weekend.

“He’s undergoing an investigation at the Jakarta Police detainment center,” narcotics unit chief Sr. Comr. Suwondo Nainggolan said as reported by kompas.com on Saturday.

His team arrested Dadang at his house on Jl. Rebana IV in Sukmajaya district in Depok on Wednesday, Suwondo said. The police seized 6.34 grams of meth allegedly owned by the suspect. Along with Dadang, the police had also detained Alfi Rizki, who allegedly had 7.53 grams of meth in his pocket.

“We’re currently attempting to determine who they got the drugs from,” Suwondo said, adding that Dadang and Alfi said they purchased the meth from a man in Mampang, South Jakarta. (vla/evi)
