Kompas.com confirms that customs officers at Bali's Ngurah Rai International Airport have arrested a French national, Virgille Luc Arthur Sidione Barnay (34) after discovering two syringes and 0.78 grams of heroin concealed in the man's underwear.
The head of the custom's office for Bali, West and East Nusa Tenggara, Faried Sibly Barchea, told the press that his officials became suspicious of the behavior of the man who arrived on AirAsia from Bangkok at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, January 22, 2010.
When a narcotics dog approached the man it detected drug traces on the man's hands which led to a more detailed physical search which revealed the drugs and syringes concealed in the front of his briefs.
The Frenchman admitted to police that he has been using heroin for the past six months and his cache was intended only for his personal consumption while visiting Bali.
The Capture of the Frenchman was the second drug bust made by airport authorities since Wednesday, January 20, 2010.
