    Police bust clandestine ecstasy industry in W. Jakarta

    Jakarta Police's anti-narcotics division announced Thursday it had arrested two suspects for allegedly running a drug-making industry in an apartment in West Jakarta.

    Division chief Sr. Comr. Anjan Pramuka Putra said the two suspects had been separatedly arrested on May 1 and 2 on Jl. Gajah Mada, Central Jakarta, and Mediterania Garden Apartment in Tanjung Duren.

    "One suspect worked to produce the drugs while the other distributed the products," Anjan said, adding that the group worked independently and had no relation with local or international syndicates.

    Along with the suspects, the police have also confiscated 2,525 ecstasy pills, 15 grams of crystal methamphitamine, 25 kilograms of caffeine, 2.89 kilograms of ecstasy ingredients and drug making facilities, which they found in a unit of the apartment.

    "The confiscated evidence is worth around Rp 5 billion [US$550,000]," Anjan said.

    Mediterania Garden, one of the most populated apartments in West Jakarta, is located just behind the Tanjung Duren Police office.
