Two students at a private university in East Jakarta have been arrested for allegedly storing several kilograms of marijuana in an on-campus room used by the student senate.

The two suspects have been identified as TBW and PH.

“Our investigators suspect the two were supplying marijuana to universities throughout the capital,” West Jakarta Police narcotics head Sr. Adj. Comr. Erick Firdaus said on Sunday as quoted by kompas.com.

Erick declined to provide any details on how the suspects obtained and distributed the marijuana, as the case was under investigation.

“We will hold a [press briefing] tomorrow,” he said. (das/iwa)
