MEDAN, NNC - The National Narcotics Agency (BNN) successfully foiled the shipment of 30 kilograms of methamphetamine (meth) from Malaysia to the waters of the Batubara Regency, North Sumatra Province says a BNN official.

Deputy of the Eradication Dept. of BNN Inspector General of Police Arman Depari also said that the National Narcotics Agency had successfully foiled the delivery of 30 kg of meth along with the perpetrators.

"The BNN also arrested four narcotics syndicates, namely DI [courier], SD [courier], IH [methamphetamine picker from Malaysia] and RS [controller]," Arman said on Sunday (3/3/2019).

Arman said that the capture of meth delivery was based on public information that in Batubara Regency there would be a shipment of narcotics from Malaysia to Indonesia by sea.

"After that the joint team conducted an investigation, and it turned out that the methamphetamine shipment was using a fishing boat which was picked up directly from Port Klang, Malaysia by someone, IH," Arman explained.

He said after entering Indonesian waters, the ship would dock in Labu Beach. After arriving in Batubara Regency, the met was taken by car by the two suspects, DI and SD.
