Julian Ponder is reportedly the partner of Dougall with whom he shares a luxury villa in the Canggu area of Bali where their child who awaits her parent's return.

Quoted in The Jakarta Globe, Made Wijaya, the head of the Custom’s Office at Bali’s airport said, “It took eight days to reveal this case, and they are all members of very big international syndicate.”

Julian was reportedly arrested with the 4.7 kilograms of cocaine in the trunk of his car in Karangasem. A subsequent inspection of his luxury villa in Bali led to the arrest of Rache, who police claim had 45 grams of cocaine in her possession.

During that raid, police apprehended Gophal later finding 78 plastic bags containing 279.3 grams of methamphetamines in his North Bali Villa.
