25 November 2021 13:47 WIB

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The Metro Jaya Police destroyed 1.74 tons of confiscated drugs in a controlled destruction on Thursday. Head of the Greater Jakarta Metropolitan Police Inspector General Fadil Imran said the contrabands were the result of the disclosure of cases by the Metro Police Narcotics Directorate from September to November 15 this year. 

"This is a challenge for all of us. How criminals behave is not only an economic motive, but because of this, they buy drugs," said Fadil at Polda Metro Jaya this morning.

The drugs that were incinerated were collected from 221 cases and involved 273 suspects with 14 of them acting as drug kingpins while 259 of them were said to be street sellers.

The 1.74 tons of drugs mostly consist of marijuana (1.65 tons), crystal meth (60.14 kilograms), extacy (470 pills), and the rest were various synthetic drugs that circulate in the illegal market. Police are positive that the arrests and drug confiscations potentially saved the lives of 3.6 million people.
