Hery told the press: “There is methamphetamine found in the samples,” adding that traces found of the drug were small, suggesting “probably it had been a long since he last consumed it.”

The Indonesian police would not be questioning Lockley further in the case and has been allowed to return to Australia where he is facing charges brought by the Australian Federal Police in connection with the incident.

The Indonesian police, however, have shared the test results with their Australian counterparts.

Lockley sparked a full scale security alert at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport on Friday, April 25, 2014, when he started pounding on the cockpit door of a Virgin Australia plane one hour out from a Bali landing. A worried pilots sent a coded radio signal declaring a hijacking was underway.

Taken into custody by military and police personnel, Lockley was placed back on a plane to face criminal charges in Brisbane.
