Over 40 Kg of Crystal Meth in Indonesia-Malaysia Border Seized

Indonesia's Border Security Task Force [Satgas Pamtas] has seized two cardboard boxes containing 40 packages of crystal methamphetamine weighing 42.9 kilograms during a patrol in Sambas regency, West Kalimantan near the Indonesia-Malaysia border.

"The crystal meth was found by the personnel at Gabma Sajingan Post," said Lieutenant Colonel Alim Mustofa, the commanding officer of the 642nd Infantry Battalion at Kapuas, who is also the head of the Indonesia-Malaysia Border Security Task Force, on Tuesday, March 9.

“The patrol [found the contraband] on Sunday afternoon. Personnel from Gabma Sajingan Post, led by Lieutenant Agus Sala, found two cardboard boxes containing suspicious packages believed to be crystal meth. The drugs were wrapped in tea packets," said Alim.

"Our men have received instruction to step up border patrols along the roads on the Indonesia-Malaysia border," said Alim, adding that the surveillance activity was done after receiving intelligence information from the Task Force members and other relevant agencies.

Alim said that the West Kalimantan Police's Narcotics Directorate and the West Kalimantan National Narcotics Agency are investigating the case.
