The North Jakarta Immigration Office raided on Tuesday an apartment building where 61 foreign nationals resided in Kelapa Gading, North Jakarta, detaining 24 of the expatriates for further investigation.

The immigration office’s head of supervision, Adi Tri Nugroho, said there were indications that the 24 foreigners had violated immigration laws and caused trouble for residents of the apartment building.

“Three foreigners were found with substances suspected to be narcotics, and they are currently being investigated by the relevant authorities,” Adi said on Tuesday, as reported by kompas.com.

Adi said the office had also received several complaints from residents who claimed the expatriates had harassed them by forcefully grabbing their cell phones and making missed calls, thereby obtaining local residents’ phone numbers.
