On Friday, May 16, 2014, an 84-year-old grandfather was captured by Bali Customs officials trying to smuggle 2.5 kilograms of methamphetamines off a Malindo Air flight from Kuala Lumpur.

The smuggler, Arsain Bin Anwar, has been turned over by Customs officer to the narcotic division of the Bali police.

The man was caught when X-ray were made of his suitcase and a backpack carried by the man.

Anwar who told officials he worked for 27 years as a car washer in Malaysia. He said that the narcotics were given to him by a friend and neighbor from Sampang, Madura who paid him 200 Ringgit, The elderly man claimed he had no knowledge to the content of the packages he was carry at his friend's request.

Police suspect another man on the same flight, identified only by the initial "R", was traveling on the same flight  to monitor Anwar's movements. Investigators postulate that "R" immediately informed an entire drug syndicate when the old man and drugs were seized by Customs officials.

The old man may now be charged as a distributor under Indonesia's tough anti-narcotics laws and, based on the large quantity of drugs involved he could be sentenced to death before a firing squad.

Police and the national narcotic squad continue to investigate the case.
