(1/23/2010)

Beritabali.com reports that two Malaysian nationals were arrested on Wednesday, January 20, 2010, with 2 kilograms of sabu-sabu or methamphetamine taped to their torsos while trying to enter the country.

Now in police custody are Chang Cheng Weng (45) and Boo Guan Teik (38).

The two men arrived on Cathay Pacific Flight no. 785 from Hong Kong at 3:30 pm after reportedly making two earlier assessment survey visits to the airport.

Police, who were initially suspicious of the men when they passed through a security gate, resorted to a more basic tactic and had an official "accidentally" bump into one of the men. Detecting an extremely hard abdomen, the police took the too men to an examination room where they discovered plastic packets of drugs taped to their mid-sections.

Police estimate the street value of the smuggled drugs at Rp. 2 billion (US$200,000).

The two men are claiming that they were merely acting as "mules" or couriers and were to be paid HKD 5,000 after the successful delivery of the drugs to a local address.

The two men may now be charged under Indonesia's tough narcotics laws with a possible death sentence waiting at the end of the legal process.

Police are seeking the two men's Bali contact to whom they were intended to deliver the contraband drugs.
