A German national hired to work as a chef for the JPS Restaurant in Seminyak, Bali has been apprehended by police after 0.11 grams of methamphetamine were found in his quarters on Jalan Pantai Selatan, Ungasan, South Kuta,
Police caught 31-year-old Sven Hauke Landthaler after making a separate, earlier arrest of Hairani, a Jakarta woman and acquaintance of Landthaler, with 0.12 grams of methamphetamine and an assortment of drug paraphernalia.
The woman, arrested on Monday, July 2, 2012, told police that she obtained drugs from the German which prompted police to make the raid.
Landthaler’s lawyer, meanwhile, is denying his client provided any drugs to the Indonesian woman.
According to Kompas.com, police also confiscated a laptop owned by the German in the hope that it would reveal details of a larger narcotic network.
Sven Hauke Landthaler has been in Bali for several years working until recently ay the Semara Luxury Villa Resort before joining JPS Restaurant.
The relatively small amount of drugs discovered by police is fueling speculation that the German and his Indonesian female acquaintance will be charged as drug users, a classification punished much less severely than those charged with dealing in larger quantities of narcotics.
