Police arrested 23 men on suspicion of drug abuse during a raid in a private home in Sunter Agung district in North Jakarta on Sunday.

Four of the suspects identified only as DS, EK, DL and TM are the owners of the house who tested positive for ecstasy, the police said.

Police seized evidence including 27 ecstasy pills and several condoms.

The suspects will be charged with Article 114 (1) of the 2009 Drug Law, which carries a maximum 20-year prison sentence and Rp 1 billion (US$67,100) in fines. (nor)
