NusaBali reports that 54-year-old Abdul Rahman, alias Willy, the manager of the Akasaka Night Club, arrested together with three employees and the seizure of 19,000 ecstasy capsules on Monday, June 5, 2017, is being identified as an extremely wealthy drug entrepreneur.

In the continuing course of their investigations police have seized cash in the tens of billions of rupiahs.

After the coordinated raid between national and provincial police elements at the Akasaka, police also raided Willy’s residence in an elite neighborhood of the Capital on Jalan M. Yamin. In the course of searching the home police found cash and bank accounts totaling Rp. 30 billion. No illicit drugs were found during the search of the man’s home.

A police official told NusaBali that stashes of cash were found under mattresses, in cabinets and other locations.

Police theorize the cash discovered were proceeds from the sale of ecstasy by Willy. Police also believe the man was involved in money-laundering activities in Bali as evidenced by financial interests uncovered in fishing boats and hotels.

Police says Willy invested in a 3-star hotel recently opened on Gili Air, a popular resort island off the west coast of Lombok.

Police contend that Willy would purchase ecstasy pills in Jakarta for Rp. 150,000 – Rp. 200,000 each that he would sell in Bali for Rp. 500,000. Given the recent seizure of 19,000 ecstasy capsules by police, Willy’s potential profit from a single haul would have reached Rp. 5.7 billion. Police estimate that the supply of 19,000 capsules would have been completely sold in only 4-5 months.

Willy was arrested in 2002 with a haul of 1,000 ecstasy pills at the Akasaka Night Club after which he was sentenced to 3 years in prison.
