Cocaine worth £1.6 million

A British woman has been arrested for allegedly smuggling cocaine worth £1.6 million into the tropical island of Bali. Lindsay Sandiford covered her face as she was brought out to face the media at a press conference in Kuta, a holiday town on the Indonesian island.

We first spotted the cocaine through routine X-Ray scanning, Customs and Excise Agency monitoring division head, Made Wijaya, told The Jakarta Post on Monday.

Sandiford, who traveled to Indonesia from Bangkok, did not make it through the Customs and Excise Agency’s X-Ray scanning. Agency officials spotted suspicious material inside her luggage and then asked her to step into their office for further examination.

The officials then found 4.7 kilograms of cocaine inside the luggage and put her under custody.

He said besides arresting Sandiford, the airport authorities had also arrested an Indian national, who is suspected of being Sandiford’s accomplice.

Indonesia has extremely strict drug laws and convicted smugglers are executed. More than 140 people are on death row, a third of them foreigners.
