(12/21/2012) reports customs officials at Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport thwarted the efforts of a 41-year-old German national to smuggle 22 capsules filled hashish into Bali on Friday, December 14, 2012.

Martin Robert Moller had reportedly swallowed the drugs concealed in plastic capsules in order to bring them into Indonesia as he arrived on Thai Airways TG 431 from Bangkok.

Customs Inspector became suspicious of the German and compelled him to undergo medical imaging that showed the 22 capsules inside his digestive system, concealing a total of 288 grams of hashish.

The head of the Ngurah Rai Airport Customs Office, I Made Wijaya, said, “Narcotics in the form of hashish in this amount has a street value on the illicit market of Rp. 172 million.” (US$17,750).

Moller, who lists his profession as a graphic designer, told police he had brought the hashish in Bangkok for Rp. 8 million (US$US$824) and that he intended to consume the drugs personally over the coming three months.

Wijaya said Moller can now be charged under Indonesia's 2009 Narcotics Law that carries a maximum sentence of death plus fines of Rp. 10 billion ((US$1 million).
