(5/18/2014)

Bali Customs officers at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport have defeated an effort to smuggle 715 grams of methamphetamines with an estimated street value of Rp. 1.43 billion (US$124,000).

The narcotics were concealed in a parcel containing a painting sent through the postal service.

Beritabali.com quoting Made Wijaya, the head of the Ngurah Rai Customs office who said on Friday, May 16, 2104: “The narcotics were placed behind a painting sent from South Africa to an address in the district of Kerobokan Kelod, North Kuta in the regency of Badung.”

Customs officials have taken into custody a man named I Nyoman Saputra who is charged with owning the drugs sent by parcel post. Saputra said he bought the drugs from a man in South Africa with plans to distribute the drugs in Bali.

The State News Agency Antara lists Saputra’s address in Bali as Jalan Kosambi, Pondok Rahayu, Banjar Kancil, Kerobokan, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung.

Saputra had reportedly used an alternate address of a nephew to receive the parcel in order elude capture by law enforcement officials.

The drugs were found when custom officials x-rayed the package on Wednesday, May 14, 2104. The drugs, wrapped in foil, were concealed in the back of the painting.

Prosecutors can now charge Saputra as a drug distributor with a maximum penalty of death before a firing squad and a fine of Rp.10 billion (US$870,000).
